Quick-start guide

Thanks for joining the E.A.T. School Lunch UX Challenge! You're officially registered now, and we’ll be sending you regular updates throughout the competition.

Here’s how to get started on your project today. Submissions are due March 1, 2016, at 5pm ET.

  1. Plan your attack. Visit the resources page for required form fields and statements, a question logic flow chart, a deeper explanation of the problem, and behavioral science and UX recommendations.
  2. Get a head start on your submission. Fill out the basic fields on the application form and familiarize yourself with the submission requirements. This will give you a good idea of what you'll need to put together. Remember: You can edit your submission as many times as you like before the deadline.
  3. Optional (but recommended!): Form a team. Thinking about buddying up? Visit the participants page to find and meet teammates. We also have a video wall and a Slack channel set up to help you meet fellow designers and developers — check out all our teammate-finding tools here!

We’re super excited to see how you’ll reimagine the school meal programs application!

We’re here to help. If you have any questions about the hackathon, post on the discussion forum or email and we’ll respond as soon as we can.
