Mayor Fischer offers $10,000 to create Louisville app

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILE, Ky. (WDRB) -- $10,000 is up for grabs for Metro Louisville's best coders and hackers.

The cash prizes are for those who can create the best apps or computer coding ideas. The city and Code for America is hosting a Hack-a-thon two weeks from today.

Mayor Greg Fischer says the task is to design or prototype an app that helps improve the quality of life in Louisville, and no idea is too strange or too bold.

Hackers just need to bring their laptop or other computer device that can be connected to a projector, so people can see the final product.
