On 11/11/11, LinkedIn and the White House are joining forces for the first-ever open Veterans Hackday. If you’re a student with technical skills or you want to build an app for a hackday, this is a great opportunity for you!
Here’s the mission:
- Find teammates or go it alone
- Build a project that helps veterans
- Present your hack to the celebrity judges for a chance to win prizes
It’s open to everyone. Veterans serve our country every day. Now is your chance to give something back. Grab some teammates, your laptop, a pot of coffee, and use your tech skills to put together a project that will benefit our veterans. [via LinkedIn]
Added bonus: Your Veterans Hackday project would make a perfect entry into the Imagine Cup, a global student technology competition that asks you to make the world a better place using technology. Have questions about the Imagine Cup? Let me know! I’d love to support your team!
