About the challenge:

Do you think you can help the state become more sustainable?
The Government Operations Agency (GovOps) and the Department of General Services (DGS) encourage the public to enter a contest to share creative solutions to improve the safety, efficiency and delivery of services.
DGS and GovOps will award up to $25,000 to participant(s) of its
“Green Gov Challenge,” an open data code-a-thon to be held Oct. 24 and 25.
The challenge engages the civic coding community to better show the work the state is doing to combat climate change.
Participants will create visualizations, apps, and other tools to help improve government sustainability practices.

Who can enter:

The contest is open to California residents and individuals who are 18 years of age or older as of the date of entry.
State employees are not eligible to enter.
