How It Works

This year, the GovTech Challenge will be held in Durshal -- a project of KPITB -- in Peshawar Pakistan. The Hackathon itself will be a HYBRID event, meaning you can participate virtually -- no matter where you are in the world -- or in person, provided you have proof of vaccination.

Our Hackathons bring together a mix of technologists, designers, urban planners, social scientists, NGOs and CSOs, and government officers to approach and solve social and civic problems in a new way, using technology, data, and digital tools. If you have a great idea that can create a positive impact in your community and address pressing challenges or have skills in web/mobile development, design, mapping, data analysis, research, subject matter expertise in the civic space, then let us know you’ll be joining us. We’ll have all the mentors and experts lined up and ready to help you think through your solution.


When you’re ready to enter your submission, go to https://govtech-hackathon.devpost.com/ home page and click CREATE A SUBMISSION. You can also start this process and save a draft of your submission as you’re working on it.

  • Include the link to the public GitHub repo.
