We’re wrapping up our first ever MozFest Youth Zone Hackathon! Over the last 10 days, participants have had an opportunity to learn a new skill, design a concept, and put those skills to the test. You can read about our hackathon themes, Social Good and Improving the Environment here.

Spot Prizes ($50 Lego Gift Cards)

Our “Best Team” prize goes to “Digital Creation Learning Hub”! The team created a full design prototype “for a Digital Creation Learning Hub, which would contain curated resources for students to learn/build/practice different types of digital creation.”

The judging team thought that the overall concept, design and future possibilities of the Digital Creation Learning Hub really made it stand out! Great Work!

Our “Most Innovative” award goes to “LitterList”! “LitterList is an online bulletin board where people help their community by picking up litter. They then post a picture of it along with what it is and where they found it.”

Pixel Lide’s creator also laid out some concise plans for the future, such as additional tutorials and examples for beginners. We hope to see those implemented as the tool shows fantastic potential!

Second Place – Attainable – ($100 Adafruit, $100 Etsy Gift Card)

Attainable is an app designed “to help people who have an intellectual disability become more independent.” With several integrated tools for various scenarios, attainable is a great first step in designing accessible tooling!
