United States Senator from Colorado, Mark Udall, announced this morning that he is partnering with API Hackday Denver, an all-day hackathon taking place next Saturday at the Denver SendGrid office. The event will now be dedicated to challenging "developers, innovators and startups to develop better tools to deliver disaster resources and information to Coloradans affected by the recent flood."

Udall is a "strong proponent of Colorado's innovation economy and startup community."

In today's press release, Udall stated, "Colorado is home to some of the most innovative and entrepreneurial people in the nation. Our startup community has done great work to create jobs and keep Colorado at the forefront of the global economic race, but they are also committed to civic innovation. This competition shows that our best and brightest are eager to give back and to help their fellow Coloradans recover from this disaster and to rebuild even stronger than before."

Participants will be encoraged to hack for the good of the Colorado flood relief efforts. Teams can work on any project of their choosing, but, in light of the recent tragedy facing our fellow community members, this is a perfect chance to leverage technology and intelligence to help others.
