Anyone can mentor or volunteer. If you are interested in helping participants through their projects, then apply as a mentor. If you are interested in helping us run the event, then apply as a volunteer.
Do I need any experience to apply?
No! Experience is not required. Hackathons are open environments for everyone. You can see projects submitted last year here.
Are there any costs?
HackGT provides food, swag, mentors, and more. Everything at the event is free thanks to our sponsors! Travel reimbursement up to $300 is available - just apply by August 14th and fill out the travel reimbursement portion of the application. Volunteers and mentors are not eligible for travel reimbursement.
Can I use past projects?
True to the spirit of hackathons, you may not submit your past projects to HackGT.
