Frequently Asked Questions

What's a hackathon?

A hackathon is a competition where students, either as a team or individually, have to create a project within a set time frame, in this case, 30 hours (though we encourage you to sleep). At the hackathon, there are also workshops for those who aren't familiar with programming, or just want to learn something new.

I don't know how to program, can I still compete?

Yes! We have workshops teaching the basics, along with mentors to help you along with your project!

Who's elegible?

Any high school or middle school student above the age of 13 is eligible to submit a project (including rising college freshman).

Where is it?

This hackathon is competely online! All workshops will be done through Zoom and project submissions will be done through devpost! In addition, our discord server is available for you to talk with likeminded coders, along with mentors to give you programming help.

When is it?

NHacks 2020 will begin at August 22nd 2PM EST! Submissions are due in 30 hours, at August 23rd 8PM EST.
