WilHacks 2.0 is an exciting and interactive experience where high school students will be given the opportunity to demonstrate or develop their programming skills. WilHacks is a free 27 hour event hosted by Adrian C. Wilcox High School's Programming Club. You and/or your team (up to 4 individuals) will have 27 hours to create an innovative application which will be reviewed by our judges for implementation and creativity. This hackathon is an excellent opportunity for students to showcase their programming skills in a competition format as well as have an enjoyable hacking experience. How will you make a difference?


If you want to participate, you must sign up for the hackathon at our website! - wil-hacks.club

WilHacks 2.0 is open to any high school student in grades 9-12 or home school equivalent. You don't need to know any coding beforehand; we will have workshops and mentors to guide you if you are a beginner. Teams can be between one and four people, but we highly encourage you to work in teams. Please note that we can only ship prizes to California residents, but students from other states are welcome!


Only projects made during the hackathon will be eligible for prizes. Please submit your project here onto Devpost and prepare a short video about your project for the judges. In order to be eligible, you MUST be registered for the hackathon on our website: wil-hacks.club
