Utah's largest 24-hour hackathon.

HackTheU is Utah's largest 24-hour hackathon where food, swag, activities, workshop, and prizes will be provided so you can just focus on working on a project with a team of 1 to 4 people for 24-hours. While hackathons tend to be more tech-based, we encourage all types of projects at HackTheU. From mobile apps to art pieces to Arduino/Raspberry Pi based projects to hardware based projects like bridges or robots, everything and anything is encouraged at HackTheU!

Judging Criteria

  • Comparison Based
    HackTheU will be conducting judging through HackMIT's Gavel this year. Gavel simply asks judges which project was better: the project before or the project they are currently looking at.
