Pitchfest & Hack-a-thon: a chance to storyboard, design, pitch, build and win prizes and recognition
On Saturday, June 17, the community is invited to the Santa Ana Public Library TeenSpace to build a new app that helps neighbors find healthy food and activities right here in Orange County.
The Alliance for a Healthy Orange County and the downtown Santa Ana business district have partnered to create a healthy app targeting specifically Anaheim, Garden Grove and Santa Ana where residents’ health is most at risk.
“Anyone can sign up for this part of the hack: come by yourself or bring a team of friends or colleagues to compete for glory,” said Ryan Smolar, Hacker-in-Chief of the Hack for Health project.
“Join us for about 2 hours on Saturday, June 17th, between 10 AM - 5 PM at the Santa Ana Public Library TeenSpace to design, storyboard, and video record a short pitch presentation for a healthy local app. Free to participate and burritos will be served by the OC Burrito Project. The winning healthy app pitch advances towards winning a $500 cash prize if their app makes it to the final stage of development.”
After the Pitchfest, the pitch teams with the best ideas will be invited back to participate a “Hack-a-thon” on Saturday, June 24th at Batch DTSA Co-Working Space, where our assembled development teams will help the pitch teams build the app.
Finally, the app will launch at a celebration on the afternoon of Wednesday, June 28th.
