The Mavens I/O Hackathon is a week-long hackathon where Black women technologists will build a small project for a $1000 cash prize, free domain, and a year's worth of hosting! These contestants will be judged under these 3 criteria: impact, feasibility, and uniqueness. The hackathon will start on August 23 and we will accept submissions until August 27 11:59 PM EST.
