## Instruction

Great! Now, how can we access specific elements in a nested list? We need to use square brackets twice, as shown below:

donations = [
[345.0, 287.80, 119.27, 329.30],
[294.25, 349.0, 178.90, 232.34],
[401.0, 455.45, 289.43, 319.27]
]

Access the first element of the first list (i.e., 345.0):

donations[0][0]

Access the second element of the third list (i.e., 455.45):

donations[2][1]

First, we need to specify the index of the list (the "row"). Then we add the index of the element (the "column"). As usual, indexes start at 0, not 1.

## Exercise

Print the name of the team that won the 1st prize for the third application.

The 1st prize winner is the first element in each nested list.

### Stuck? Here's a hint!

Use hackathon_results[2][0].
