What is BullyHack?

A 24 Hour Hackathon at Mississippi State University

BullyHack is a 24 hour MLH supported event hosted at Mississippi State University on January 11th through 12th, 2020. The Association for Computing Machinery-Women sponsors our event to foster a creative technological environment where students from all backgrounds can join. Whether you are an experienced coder or a brand new engineering freshman, we want you to join us. We've worked hard to bring technologies such as virtual reality, mobile apps, security apps, etc for you to mess around with and have fun.

Participants will have 24 hours to brainstorm and design their idea. In order to be considered for prizes, you must demo your project. However, even if you didn't finish in time, we still highly recommend you demo. 


Winners will take home fantastic prizes and everyone will take home something new and a refreshing look of how Mississippi State supports a tech-friendly atmosphere.
