IT WOULDN'T BE A PROPER FESTIVAL WITHOUT PRIZES AND SWAG
From billboard-sized prizes to free masks and hand sanitizer, the Houston Tech Rodeo will hook you up with the swag you need to represent the Houston innovation ecosystem
#Hou2You Photo Challenge
Clutch City, Space City, H-Town. Houston has many names and even more great accomplishments to celebrate. From culinary achievements to breakthroughs in health care, Houston breathes innovation.
We're looking for the photo that best encapsulates Houston's unique culture of innovation based on what innovation means to you.
One selected photo will be featured on a Houston billboard courtesy of Clear Channel Outdoor!

One selected photographer each day will receive a prize courtesy of Sibme.
