  • All submissions must be received by 6:00 PM EST, February 9th in order to be judged.
  • After hacking finishes, teams will show their projects to each other and to the judges in our Project Expo in Klaus Atrium.  Each team will have between 2-3 minutes to demo to judges.
  • You are strongly encouraged to present a demo of what you have built. Pitches and PowerPoint presentations are discouraged.
  • You are encouraged to present what you have done even if your hack is broken or you weren’t able to finish. It's okay if you didn't finish your hack—that happens all the time! Completion is only one part of the judging criteria, so you might still do well. Also, demoing is not just about the competition, it's a chance to share with others what you learned and what you tried to build—that's what hacking's all about!
  • After the Project Expo, you may fix any bugs to your code or small fixes to your program during this time. 
  • Judges will determine the Top 4 teams representing each decade.  The final demo who will present at 8:45PM to judges and other hackathon participants.  Teams presenting must use their own computers.  These teams will be eligible for the CoC grand prize.
