This year I'm fortunate enough to go to knowledge, and one of my
favorite SN people, Robert Fedoruk, posted a YouTube video about winning hackathons.

In the spirit of sharing I'm adding a list I compiled after some
searching to see what's won previously as it wasn't aggregated anywhere
I could see. I'd love to see these shared in an open way after wards but
if this just make the competition better, than that's great and my goal
here. Below is that list.
