CharterHacks is an online hackathon run by students in the Charter School of Wilmington. In this hackathon, we hope to bring the brightest students from around the world to participate in a weekend hackathon with many fun events, games, and prizes to keep everyone entertained! If you have any questions about this hackathon, you can email us at email@example.com or talk with us through Discord.
You are given August 6-9th to create a project in a team of 1-4. Submissions and additional information can be found on DevPost. In your submission, you will include a presentation of your project that will show your idea in motion while answering other important questions such as challenges you had to overcome during creation, what your project does, and its audience.
Grading will be fairly simple. You will be graded based on creativity, complexity, and the originality of your idea. The rubric is found here. Plagiarism in this contest will not be tolerated, though website templates and use of code snippets will be allowed (with given credit in the code). Your goal shouldn't be to win, but just to have fun!
As long as you are a high-schooler or middle-schooler, you can! This means that even if you graduated this school year, you may still participate.
Coding isn't as hard as many people think it is. With a little time and effort, you can become an amazing coder! You can check out our resources here for some help.
The hackathon will be held on August 6-9th virtually due to COVID-19. Main communication with participants will be through the Discord, so be sure to join!
You should participate in the hackathon because it will be fun. Not to mention, there will be prizes for the winners and minicontests as well!
