Frequently Asked Questions

How many people can be on a team?

There can be 1-4 members on a team! Feel free to go solo, or collaborate with other hackers to create a project.

What if I don't have a team?

No worries at all! Many participants go into a hackathon looking for team members. We will have a team finding channel in our Discord server, and a networking portion for the in-person component for you to connect with other hackers.

How much does it cost to attend?

Attending Ignition Hacks is completely free. Zero dollars! We will cover all costs. Your only job is to hack, and have lots of fun! Leave the rest to us.

Is there a theme for projects?

We do not have a specific theme at Ignition Hacks, however, we are a business-tech hackathon, which means your pitch, idea, and technical demo are all equally valuable. We also offer specific prize tracks which will be listed closer to the event date, so if you’re stuck on project ideas, you can refer to those!

How long will the hackathon last?

The hackathon will last from Friday, August 16th to Sunday, August 18th. Hacking will be strictly 36 hours.

Who can participate?

Anyone from middle school to undergraduate students are welcome to compete!

What if I've never been to a hackathon before?

Ignition Hacks aims to help people from a variety of technical backgrounds and experiences. We are beginner friendly, and strive to reduce the barrier of entry to technology (including having a best beginner hack award). We will provide lots of resources including workshops, activities, and mentors for you to have one of the best hackathon experiences possible!
