Is too much
Hello, senior developer and PM here, unless I did not understand the scope of this hackathon, I'm afraid what you are asking for is too much for 2 months and a 30K prize and you most probably will get bad projects.
"Create a fun app for open source collaboration on maps of problems (miro-style) through crowdsourcing (wikipedia-style) and crowdfunding (kickstarter-style)."
We are talking about a project that combines 3 different, very complicated, applications. A collaboration tool like Miro, that's supports public collaboration with necessary revision system, like Wikipedia, with support for crowdfunding on every single node/issue/problem, like Kickstarter. These are 3 applications that on themselves are even 3 separate companies since they are complicated to do it right and maintain.
I hope I'm wrong, in which case please correct me, since the project is very interesting I will love to participate, BUT, if this is really the scope of it, I strongly recommend you to narrow it down. I have been directing IT projects for the past 10 years and can guarantee you that this is too much.
I hope you understand that my intention is not to be rude
