We welcome teams of up to four university students to apply. Spring 2015 graduates are eligible as long as one teammate is enrolled in college for Fall 2015. High school teams may be accepted in special cases.

What if I don’t have a team?

If you don’t have a team, you may apply as an individual applicant. However, priority will be given to team applications therefore we strongly recommend that you apply as a team.

How many teams will you accept?

We will accept 45 teams.

What do you look for in teams you accept?

We look for talented teams with a keen passion for building cool stuff. Bonus points if you've won hackathons before!

What can we build and when can we start working on our project?

You can work on anything you'd like but we ask that you wait until the official start of the hackfest to begin your project.

How will our project be judged?

Your hack will be judged based on five different criteria: level of difficulty, aesthetics, originality, usefulness, and your project’s “WOW factor.”

Will you guys have any hardware onsite?

We will not have hardware onsite. However, if your hack requires hardware, we will reimburse your team up to $50 if you bring a receipt.

When is the deadline to apply?
