Hey Hackers! Welcome to the 6th iteration of Hoya Hacks, hosted at Georgetown University (and over the internet!). Please sign up through our registration form - NOT just on Devpost! Due to high demand, all applicants after 12/15/2020 will receive swag boxes on a first-come, first serve basis.

This year, Hoya Hacks will be completely virtual. This means that all students - starting from high school - are welcome to participate! We're preparing our schedule & events to accommodate different time zones, and your merch will be mailed prior to the hackathon.
