How It Works


  • Once your project team sits at a table, do not change tables. This table will be assigned to you. Multiple project teams can share one table.
  • Teams can build apps from scratch (Mobile App / Consumer Web App / Business Web App). Teams can solve as many challenges as they want (zero, one, or multiple).
  • Teams must be between 1 member and 5 members. Teams with over 5 members are not eligible for sponsored prizes or overall awards.
  • All hackathon prizes will be sponsor prizes. The sponsors will choose their own prizes and their own prize winners on Day 2 of the hackathon.
  • There will be 2 rounds of judging on Day 2.
    • Round One (12:00 PM – 1:30 PM), “Overall Winner” judges will hear your pitch at your table and fill out a scoring sheet on each team.
    • Round Two (1:30 PM – 2:30 PM) you pitch sponsors at their tables.
  • The top 5 project teams (as decided by the Overall Judges) will pitch on the main stage.
  • Because of the sheer number of participants and teams, participants will not be able to organize teams by pitching their ideas on day one. They can however post projects to the network and contact other members about joining projects.
  • Sponsors are responsible for delivering you prizes. Some prizes will be delivered after the hackathon. We will provide sponsors with your contact information.
