What is BullyHack?

Bullyhack is a free hackathon event held in Starkville, MS designed for students from all majors to work in teams to solve today's problems. A hackathon can be described as a mix between an engineering fair and a career fair. It's a creative community for programming enthusiasts to work for 24 hours creating amazing technological projects. These projects are then judged by professionals from industry and academic professors.

What should I bring?

Bring a computer, overnight gear (i.e. a sleeping bag), and photo ID. We provide everything else including 24hr food options as well as a sleeping area. Vegetarian options included.

What can I win?

A grand prize winner chosen from all submitted projects will receive $2000. A second and third place from all submitted projects will receive $1000 and $500 respectively. A best website, best game, and best mobile app will be chosen. Each of these winners will receive $500.

What happens if I don't have a team?

No worries! We will have a team building exercise at the beginning.
