#HackCollege: A Day in the Life of a Social Good Hackathon

September 28, 2012

Yesterday, in partnership with Facebook and College Summit, the Gates Foundation co-hosted a hackathon to kick off the College Knowledge Challenge. The Challenge is a competitive funding opportunity through which 30 developers can win $2.5 million in grants to build Facebook apps that will help make the college-going process easier to understand and navigate, especially for low-income students.

Follow along with the hackathon below to find out more about why we must help more students get into college, how you can apply to win up to $100,000 with a great idea, and which lucky team won the HackED Hackathon bragging rights.
