#Hackathon for Healthy Oceans

Calling all coders (and designers and project managers, too)!

The State Department and the Aquarium need your talents for a project supporting ocean wildlife and healthy oceans.

It all takes place during a #Fishackathon in Monterey, beginning under the full moon on Friday, June 13.

We’ll feed you and put you up at the Aquarium for two days while you #CodeForFish – with our living exhibits as your inspiration. It’s a chance to use your skills to tackle two big fisheries challenges that need solutions if we want our oceans – and ocean wildlife – to stay healthy for future generations.

National event, with prizes

The hackathon in Monterey is one of five simultaneous events taking place across the country during the first-ever #Fishackathon.

Prizes for the cleanest code and best solutions include cash prizes of $5,000 and $1,000, a trip to the Philippines, and a Monterey vacation getaway.

The winning teams will be part of a Google Hangout on Monday, June 16 during the State Department’s Our Ocean 2014 Ocean Summit in Washington, DC.

We’re looking for teams of Silicon Valley’s best and brightest for a day and two nights of creative coding, design and project management, ending Sunday morning, June 15.
