What are we all about?

The University of Windsor is proud to host its inaugural hackathon in March 2020. WinHacks will inspire tech talent locally to get involved in our technology community, ultimately contributing to unlocking the potential of our future programmers, hackers, and designers so that we all make a difference.

This event will be hosted in the Odette School of Business at the University of Windsor. Over 200 students are expected to join us on this three-day event, where all participants will be given 36 hours to come up with their greatest hack. The theme for this hackathon is Mobility! Students are free to interpret the theme however they want.

Participants will be given the opportunity to come up with their greatest creation that will be later presented and judged by a panel of qualified adjudicators and win top tech and cash prizes to be announced!

FREE food and educational events such as workshops to help hone and adopt new skills in the field of computer science are also on the agenda. We believe that these activities will give contestants a taste of both entrepreneurship and a feel for the work environment that they will soon find themselves.

FAQ

Some common questions you may have about WinHacks, or hackathons in general


To put it simply, hackathons combine the two words: hacking and marathon. Participants will get the chance to form teams of up to 1-4 members, and bring a project idea to life! However, they only have 36 hours to accomplish this. Students will receive mentorship, learn about new job opportunities, and get some cool swag!

WinHacks applications are open to students from across the world. Whether you are a freshman or completing your PhD, we want you to apply! We will also be accepting high school students! Each application is reviewed from the WinHacks organizing team, and decisions will be sent out on a rolling basis.

There's always a first time for everything, right? We highly encourage individuals with various levels of experience to apply to WinHacks. WinHacks is a hackathon where individuals from various disciplines, majors, and backgrounds are encouraged to come out and participate.

We follow the Major League Hacking guidelines, which prohibits students from bringing and continuing a project that they have already worked on. Your final project should be new and only built during the weekend of WinHacks.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis according to the following schedule:
  • Round 1 Application Deadline: February 23
  • Round 1 Acceptances: February 26
  • Round 1 RSVP Deadline: March 1
  • Round 2 Application Deadline: March 6
