Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's hackathon! It was great seeing all the excellent submissions built on PV 4 this year, and again this year the field was so tight that our judges had a hard time settling on a first place winner. Due to this, it is my pleasure to announce that the prize for the Best Data Science Application category was bumped up to match the first place prize so we could reward both teams for a job well done!

Please remember each blog post submission should have the following:
