As one of our objectives in the Web3 Foundation is promoting the Web3 technology stack, we would like to support any individual or team who wants to organize a hackathon that gets more developers to understand Polkadot and Substrate in your city or online.
We are not only providing technical resources for you, but we can have someone from our team give a hands-on workshop/presentation about the technology to help participants get started hacking on it more quickly.

How do hackathons differ from workshops?
Hackathon is aimed at participants who want to deliver their prototype and demonstrate their ideas to reality in a short period (few hours - one day). Workshops are more for getting developers familiar with the tooling and understanding more about what are the resources currently available and how they can make use of it.
How can you run a hackathon in your city?
