New virtual hackathon

On behalf of the Amazon Alexa Development Team, I'd like to invite all of your students to come join a new virtual hackathon that we are hosting on our MindSumo innovation platform.

For this special competition, Amazon is asking students from all over the world to use technology for good by creating a new Amazon Alexa skill that improves the sustainability or accessibility of the world around us.

Amazon Alexa | Hack Your World Contest

For the official announcement from Amazon:
Calling All University Students to Hack Your World with Amazon Alexa

Students that participate will have a chance to earn cash prizes and an Amazon Echo for the best skill. Also, skills developed in this contest that pass the Alexa certification test w ill be available on the official Amazon Alexa store for anyone to download.

This is a wonderful opportunity for your students to apply the knowledge they are learning in your classroom towards an amazing cause and get recognized by one of the most important companies in the world.
