Get Involved

GovHack 2015 Red Carpet AwardsMore than just promoting open data, GovHack is about the people. This hackathon would be nowhere without the contributions of our sponsors, the assistance from our mentors, and the dedication of our volunteer teams. GovHack is 100% run by the community for the community and we sincerely thank everyone involved for helping make the 9th annual GovHack possible.
