Submission period is now open - Join the Office Hours

The challenge is now live and ready to take submissions — it's time to get to work to build solutions using Azure that can help empower communities and drive change. Remember to request access.

We will be hosting the first office hour session about Data & Analytics on October 13th at 9 AM PT. Save to your calendar.

Here is a reminder about the main requirement for this hackathon:

Build an application prototype with Azure that solves a challenge facing social justice. The application should be functional with real or sample data.

Additional submission requirements

  • Provide a way to access your working submission for judging and testing. Must enable access to source code for judging. Code must be open source.
  • Include a text description that explains the features and functionality of the submission and describe how the submission could help solve the challenge stated.
  • Submit a 3-5 minute demo video of the app in action (hosted on YouTube, Vimeo), to prove it is a real application, and not an animation. Your video should include a demo of your working submission via a step-by-step visual demo.
  • Please submit at least one image/screenshot of your submission.


Be sure to check out the Social Justice Resources, Technical Resources, and your to-do list identify the social justice issue you want to address, find out more about Azure, and get started building.

Good luck and happy building!
