Our hackathon will take place from (June 17th to June 19th). You can work in a team of up to 4 or individually for this hackathon. If you are a beginner or have less experience in programming, we will take that into account while judging projects to make sure everyone has a fair chance at awards.

Submission can be anything you created through code during the hackathon.  Games, websites, and apps are all great ideas. Projects don't have to be fully complete, but we want to see that you worked on your code to the best you could. The requirements are listed below.

1. The team or individual must have started coding their project on June 17th at the start time of the opening ceremony (12 CST).  All projects must be submitted to devpost before 1:00 CST. We will extend the deadline only if your team experienced technical issues. 

2. All submissions must include a 2-minute video showing a clear demo and explanation of the project. Please include the voice of every team member if possible.

3. Please write around 1 or 2 sentences for each question on the devpost submission. An essay isn't required, but please share the story behind your project!

4. Cross submission- submitting your project to multiple hackathons happening on the same days is allowed as long as you did not start coding before the opening ceremony of Space City Hacks.

5. Submitting previously created projects to the hackathon or submitting projects that you did not create is forbidden.

Judging Criteria

  • Originality
    Projects that are innovative and creative. They do something new or have a new approach to what already exists.
  • Learning
    Teams and individuals show that they have grown their skills and overcame challenges in the hackathon. For example, a complete beginner who made their first website would score higher than a pro who just uses their old skills.
  • Effort
    The project shows a significant amount of work for the time frame.
  • Aesthetics
    Users have an easy time navigating through the project. Students considered the user experience and interface.
  • Presentation
    The final pitch clearly explains and demonstrates the app/website/game and how it was built.
