Online election guide — We Choose Our Future — won for best UX

The second annual PygHack — a 24-hour hackathon at Research Park — took place in September. Just like last year, Pixo had a few hands in the hack. We staffed a table with consultants (and candy!) while the hack took place, and afterward, we judged the final hacks and awarded a Pixo Prize for best user experience (UX).

At a hackathon, user experience is typically not at the top of everyone’s list of priorities. Most people are just trying to get through the 24 hours with a functioning product to show for it.

But this year, we found a clear winner in the We Choose Our Future team. They built a live website for Champaign County voters to educate themselves and find all the local relevant election information collected in one place.
