High School Hackathon

Registrations Opening Soon!

Hack HSV is for

In the context of a hackathon, "hack" is used to describe how students work together to beat the clock as they create something new and innovative. At Hack HSV, participants in teams up to five trade their sleep for a day and code a project based on a theme announced at the competition in an environment optimized for creativity (think of it as a science fair for coding). These projects can vary in any platform from web development, mobile apps, and even Scratch. At the end of the event, participants will showcase their projects to fellow hackers, parents, and judges and have the chance to win amazing prizes. At Hack HSV, we want to inspire high school students across Alabama to create something exciting and rewarding!
