A hackathon is a place to create.

Working together with a team, you will have 24 hours to create something: website, app, game, anything. You’ll then present your creation to a panel of judges.

A hackathon is a place to learn.

For the beginner coders, we provide workshops. These workshops are designed so you can learn a new skill. For veteran hackers, industry programmers will be available as mentors. These mentors are a way to learn what happens in real life.

A hackathon is a place to have fun.

Meals, snacks, and swag are all provided — free of charge. Special breakouts are planned to give your mind (and fingers!) a break.

  • How long is Hack Cincinnati?

    You will have 24 hours to work on your projects at Hack Cincinnati. We will also have activities before and after the block of coding, so expect to be there from Saturday afternoon to Sunday evening.

  • Where is Hack Cincinnati?

    Hack Cincinnati will be hosted in Cincinnati, OH. Venue details will be released closer to the event — all students are welcome to register today to receive important event updates.

  • Who can come to Hack Cincinnati?

    Any current high school student is welcome to come to Hack Cincinnati — all we ask is that you bring a school issued ID with you. Additionally, teachers and parents are welcome to come to the final awards ceremony.

  • Do I need to know how to code?

    Hack Cincinnati is completely beginner friendly — coders of all skill levels are welcome to come learn or create something new!

  • What should I bring?

    At the minimum, you'll need a student ID, laptop, and charger. We also recommend bringing a change of clothes, toiletries, and a sleeping bag or pillow. You won't be able to leave Hack Cincinnati after the event starts, so make sure you have any medications you'll need.

  • Is there a code of conduct?

    Yes. Please read our Code of Conduct carefully prior to attending.

Our Team

Last year, we ran CincyHacks, Cincinnati’s largest high school hackathon. This year, we’re kicking it up a notch: we’re bringing in leaders from Mason Hack Camp, Hack Chicago, McDonogh Hacks, and CodeDay to run an event for 300 high school programmers, hackers, and designers.
