📍 Coming Soon
Cohackathon is an online hackathon for middle and high school students. Over the course of 24 hours, participants will create a project, meet new people, engage in learning workshops, take part in fun activities, and present to judges to compete for prizes.
Interested in sponsoring an event? Contact us!
The hackathon is oriented around middle and high school students, who are around 12-18 years old. But if you are outside that range and the description sounds like something you’d like to participate in, contact us and we can figure something out.
No, you don’t need a team to participate — there will be opportunities to find teams to work with during the hackathon. Working by yourself is perfectly fine as well. However, having teammates allows you to have a wider range of skills on your side, which helps with developing a project, so we strongly encourage you to find a team.
No, there will be workshops and experts to help you learn and build your first project. While coding knowledge helps, teams require expertise in other areas as well, such as UI design, marketing, public speaking, and copywriting.
No, you may brainstorm ideas beforehand, but you should only implement your project and write code during the hackathon. You are completely free to use open-source software libraries, however.
Everyone who signs up will be invited to join our Slack.
Projects will be submitted digitally on Devpost.
Yes, top 3 winners will receive prizes which are TBA. There will also be specialized awards with smaller prizes. On top of that, everyone who participates will receive complementary merch!
