Microsoft Public Sector DPE announces the launch of a nationwide mobile application development campaign today to bring citizens and developers together to build MOBILE AMERICA. Mobile America – the people hackathon is inspired by America itself–an event for the people, by the people.

Are you a concerned citizen with ideas on how technology could solve social problems? A developer with the knowledge, technical skills, vision, and desire to contribute to the future? Here’s your opportunity to develop an app or app prototype that contributes to America, using Microsoft Windows Phone, Windows Azure or Windows 8, and win prizes!

Our judges will select first and second place winners in each of three categories: Windows Phone apps, Windows Azure apps, and Windows 8 prototypes. Winners in each category will receive:

  • $1,500 for the first place winner
  • $500 and a Windows Phone Device with an approximate Retail Value (ARV) of $449.99 for the second place winner
