I am excited to announce that I am self-leading a three-day, online semi-hackathon from August 19th (12 AM PST) — 22nd (9PM PST). Please sign up here for the event: form.

Any student 5-12th grade from anywhere can participate in the event. You can choose to build a solution to any problem related to the theme, which is MEDIA. Your project will be submitted in the form of a 3-minute video demo which will be judged by a panel of experienced founders/venture capitalists (judges listed below). No programming experience is needed to participate and several prizes don't even require any code to win. You can work on your project individually or in a team.

The following prizes will be awarded:

  • 1st place: $500
  • 2nd place: $300
  • 3rd place: $150
  • Best Design (no code required): $100
  • Best Pitch (no code required): $100
  • Honorable Mention: $75
  • Honorable Mention: $75

More information can be found here.

Please share this with your peers! I will be sending out a doc with all the information needed 24 hours before the hackathon begins.

Thank you!

JUDGES: - Eric Bahn (TBD): General Parter & Founder at Hustle Fund - Brian Koo, Founder of Maum Capital Group - Keith Ryu: Co-Founder and CEO of Fountain
