The Child Support Hackathon is the opportunity for child support professionals to share how they problem-solved an issue or challenged experienced in the workplace today.  It's really a celebration of the child support community's ideas and innovation!














What is the Child Support Hackathon?

Four agencies will be selected to participate in a live event showcasing a challenge it faced and the solution.  Or, what we are calling a Hack.  Each selected agency will present its Hack during a live event on October 29, 2020.  The four Hacks will be reviewed by a panel of judges and a prize award to the best Hack. There will also be a People's Choice Award, as voted on by the live audience. 


Here's how you can join the Child Support Hackathon

 Submit a Hack

  • Child Support state, county or tribal organizations are invited to showcase their approach to problem-solving an issue or challenge the organization has faced. Private sector organizations can submit a Hack with an agency they are working with.

  • Organizations are invited to consider an issue unique to its office in the area of customer service, business operations, or technology. 

  • Have a problem and solution in another area? That's okay too!  Tell us about it.  

  • No challenge is too small.  This is all about IDEAS and INNOVATION.

  • Hacks are to be submitted online.

  • Applications must be submitted by 9 PM EST, Monday, September 14, 2020







Selection & Participation

  • Hacks will be reviewed and selected by a three person panel.

  • Those organizations that submitted Hacks will be notified by, Monday, September 21, 2020 of the status of its submission.

  • Organizations that were selected will be provided judging guidelines, participation guidelines, and the timeline.  

Not a Hacker?  Not a problem.
