Challenge outline

GovHack is a respected community event which has established strong ties with Australian developer communities, industry, and all tiers of government. We believe the integrity of GovHack is paramount. By joining the GovHack team, you play an important role in the success of the event. Without volunteers like you, GovHack wouldn't be the success it is today!

Within the GovHack team, there are three levels of involvement: the national operations team, the state/territory operations team, and event operations team. Each level of involvement have their own tasks to complete to ensure the success of GovHack. Each level supports the others to ensure the success of their tasks.
