This October, the first annual LeadingAge HackFest will challenge participants to "Engage with Age" by creating a technology-driven tool to improve the lives of older adults and their families.

The tool you develop could be:

An app
A website
An interactive online experience
A device

Inspiration and examples will be provided.

Participants will have one day to design and build their tool. Tools don't need to be fully developed or complete, but presentations should include a plan for how the project could be implemented and launched.

Participants will keep intellectual property rights to anything they create during the HackFest.

Tools will be judged based on originality, usability, feasibility, design relevance, and 'most developed' by the end of the session. The first place team will be awarded $5,000. There will be cash and other prizes for runners-up.
