Any high school student is welcome to apply! If you're in middle school, you may attend if you are at least 13 years old. Absolutely no coding experience is necessary.
You can let us be your first! :) In fact, hackMHS is designed with first time hackers in mind, with many mentors and workshops to guide you along the way!
Nothing at all! hackMHS is completely free to all participants. While you're here, you'll get free food and free stuff.
Sorry, we're currently unable to provide travel reimbursement.
hackMHS will last Saturday morning through Sunday afternoon. The hacking period will be 24 hours.
Yes! hackMHS is definitely safe. All 24 hours, there are adult chaperones on site monitoring the event around-the-clock. Along with that, Millburn High School is a safe location with night time security. Also, all students must follow the MLH Code of Conduct.
Students are encouraged, although not required, to stay overnight as part of the hackathon experience. There will be designated quiet areas for sleeping. If you are uncomfortable staying overnight, you may be picked up by a parent.
Applications are now closed. Check back next year!
Bring your laptop, phone, chargers, a sleeping bag (if desired), and excitement about learning new things!
Participants will be selected by a random lottery. Each round of accepted students will have 2-3 days to RSVP.
Nope! We encourage you to meet new students during team formation at the beginning of the event. We recommend you form a team of up to 4 students.
Feel free to email us your questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll be happy to answer them!
