FAQ

Of course there will be prizes although it isn’t all about winning but what you learn and build during those 24 hours. But don’t worry there will be a panel of judges that will select the three best hacks based on creativity, technical difficulty, design, and usefulness. Prizes for first, second and third place TBA. Sponsors also offer prizes for specific criteria, which they judge themselves.
