Young Rewired State
Young Rewired State is a series of collaborative hacking event for under 18s primarily based in the United Kingdom. It brings together young developers to build web and mobile applications that attempt to solve real world problems. Most of the developers participating in Young Rewired State have taught themselves or learned coding skills outside the traditional school curriculum. It is the philanthropic arm of Rewired State.
Every year Young Rewired State holds a national hackathon where attendees across the UK take part in a competition to make an application that includes at least one piece of open government data. At the end of the week the contestants present their creations to a panel of judges and they can win prizes in a variety of categories.
