Hack on State

A 12-hour programming marathon

Innovative young developers and creative thinkers will get to design a software application that addresses a community issue of their choice – ranging from education accessibility and quality to neighborhood violence and gentrification.

Teams will be comprised of no more than five students, and will be formed based on a common desire to solve a specific problem rather than by high school.

Groups will be able to sign up throughout the day at the Mentor Desk to receive advice from industry professionals.
