CUNY Hackathon 2021 is the first virtually held hackathon for the City University of New York students, but we still welcome students from all over the world. With the goal of bringing together students in software development, design, marketing and entrepreneurship to build solutions for problems unique to the New York City community, this 24-hour event will see students create projects and learn from workshops and activities.
While you can create any project, we have some suggestions for themes you can follow. Each track will have a winner.
We also have other prizes. For sponsored prizes, you'd have to use their technology to qualify for their prize.
