STUDENTS. The inaugural Coding for Community Hackathon invites teams of students, innovators, creators, and others to develop ideas and generate solutions for challenges proposed by Choose Civility Alliance Partners and Advocates. Working with mentors from the tech community, teams will have five hours to learn something new and create something awesome. All skill levels are welcome to be involved with this collaborative computer programming event. Whether you program daily, or have never touched code, you can participate!

Teams will compete in one of four divisions:

  • Middle school (grades 6 – 8)

  • High school I (grades 9 – 10)

  • High school II (grades 11 – 12)

  • College age (18+)

Online registration for students begins in September.
