Nonprofit Organization: Iowa Public Radio
Hackathon Year: 2016
About the Project: Iowa Public Radio informs, enriches and engages Iowans through high quality news and cultural programming. As a result of the 2016 hackathon, listeners of IPR are now able to purchase premium items, like coffee cups and t-shirts, in an online store. Previously these items have only been available through IPR during its fund drives. IPR is one of the first public radio broadcasters nationally to provide this service.
