Challenges / Project

We will be using to manage the event.  Devpost has a submission process that allows users to add text, video, images, links, and even upload files to create their submission. Here's a demo of how that works. 


There must be 3 members to each team. Teams must consist of three members of the same academic level. All team members are required to register an account with Devpost. Once a team is formed please register it on our Team Sign Up tab. Teams should be diverse in skill i.e. Marketing, Advertising, User Experience, Product Development, etc.

Code, Design, Marketing, Business, etc

To ensure a level field for all contestants, all code, design and assets must be created during the duration of the Hackathon. We want to ensure that all participants start off on the same footing and we also want to preserve the true nature of a hackathon. You are, however, free to make plans, create wireframes, and brainstorm prior to the event.  We take this rule very seriously for the sake of all members attending the event. Failure to comply may result in the offending team's disqualification.
