Major League Hacking 2017 Hackathon Season
January 27th-28th, 2018
24 Hours. Great Prizes. Totally Free.
Let's Hack!

What is MinneHack?

Only the largest hackathon in the Twin Cities.

24 Hours

Teams have 24 hours to identify a problem, implement a technical solution, and pitch to industry professionals.

Great Prizes

Thousands of dollars in prizes means good work gets rewarded. Better yet: each member of a winning team gets their own prize.

Totally Free

We provide meals, transportation to and from select schools, swag, and an awesome experience! It's all entirely free as long as you're currently a student.

MinneHack is a team member of Major League Hacking (MLH), a premier Hackathon community organization, and we're set to be better than ever!
