FAQ

Is the hackathon free to enter?

Yes.

How old do I have to be?

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 youโ€™d like to participate in, contact us and we can figure something out.

Do I need a team?

No, you donโ€™t need a team to participate โ€” 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.

Do I need to know how to code?

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.

Can I prepare code beforehand?

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.

How can we communicate to form teams or ask questions?

Everyone who signs up will be invited to join our Slack.

How do I submit my project for judging?

Projects will be submitted digitally on Devpost.

Will there be prizes?

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!
