Create and submit your education-based hacks for DivHacks here!

DivHacks is Columbia's first and only student-run diversity hackathon with an objective to create an empowering and inspirational space for underrepresented students in entrepreneurship and technology. For too long, the technology sector has prioritized the voices of the privileged at the expense of diverse peoples and points of view. DivHacks introduces a space for disenfranchised communities to create technologies that reflect our diverse backgrounds and narratives.

Requirements

Be creative with your hacks! We don't have any specific technical requirements - we just want them to relate to our theme of education for all

You can submit a link to your app, a GitHub page, or anything else accessible to the judges. If you're creating a mobile app, please attempt to upload it to the App Store/Google Play store. 

We also highly recommend including instructions for the judges on how they can use, access, and test your hacks.
