2020 Sanford HealthHack Finalists Announced

A HUGE thank you to all who submitted a solution for the 2020 Sanford HealthHack! We had over 150 registrations and 20+ solutions submitted. 

The judges were impressed both with the level of creativity shown and the seriousness with which each of you took on this challenge. After much consideration, they have narrowed down the entries to ten finalists. These teams scored the highest in the judging criteria: scale, complexity, innovation, impact and quality.

Solutions are DUE Oct. 31st @ 11:45PM CST

Teams!

We are excited to see activity has picked up in the Slack as you prepare for the coming deadline for solutions submissions. We'd like to take a moment to clarify a confusing item around the submission deadline for the HealthHack. 

The official deadline is 11:45pm CST on Saturday, October 31st. We know it was stated during the kickoff event (and published in a couple of spots on DevPost) that the deadline was Oct. 30th. This was a mistake, and to avoid anyone losing a day, we have standardized on the October 31st deadline. 

Remember, guidelines around submissionsa can be…
