A Huge Hackathon for High Schoolers! No experience needed! Join us at Paypal HQ in the Silicon Valley March 8-9!

HSHacks is a two-day event where high school students work together in teams (of up to 4 students) to design, build, and pitch an app to judges. Find your next internship, make something cool in 24 Hours, get some free schwag! At HSHacks, we are open to all experience levels. We believe a high school hackathon should be just as much as a learning experience as it is a coding experience. Welcome to the Big Leagues!
