      We are looking to help out our cities and counties. Take some data and find an interesting pattern, take a few datasets and find an interesting correlation, benchmark some data between cities and counties, create a data story or create an app. Everyone should be able to participate. At the end, let us know what you did even if you did not find anything interesting as the techniques you used or the problems you encountered may inspire others to new ideas.
