Participate in Hacks 4 Humanity: Hackathon on Sept. 20 and Sept. 21 and create technology solutions that address the needs of humanity, in the form of an app, with other members of your community.

Hacks 4 Humanity’s Hackathon is a two day event filled with techies, programmers, developers, humanishackathonts, artists, students, professors, and creative visionaries who are gathered in one place with the same objective: to hack for “Social Good” and build technology solutions to address issues facing humanity.

At the Hackathon, participants will form teams comprised of an app developer, graphic designer, and creative visionaries. Teams will develop cutting-edge technology solutions that will solve complex challenges and allow them to engage and innovate in the 7 Principles: forgiveness, respect, kindness, integrity, empathy, self-reflection, and compassion.

You don’t need app or design skills to participate! Every person brings unique value to their teams, even without previous experience. You will meet for a few hours on Saturday to form teams, discuss project guidelines, and begin brainstorming. Teams will then gather again on Sunday for an all-day work session. Food is provided for participants. Apps will be presented to judges on Sunday night, and 3-5 projects will be chosen. Winners will receive sponsored prizes.

In addition to participants, Hacks 4 Humanity is also looking for possible sponsors, connections, volunteers or your expertise. Visit Hacks 4 Humanity’s website for more information.
