Students spend 36 hours building anything they can imagine, and take breaks to interact with technology visionaries, founders, and find new mentors. They meet with the hottest, most sought-after companies in the world who vie for hackers' attention. For MHacks, students give up a weekend of partying to invest a weekend in their personal growth by learning something new, and creating solutions to problems they see in the world. 

MHacks isn't just a hackathon -- it's a community of people who have ideas and build them.


- Teams may include up to four members.

- All hacks must be built at MHacks 12by registered participants. Unregistered hackers will not be allowed to participate.

- Remote participation is not allowed.


Judging will be done by both sponsors and the MHacks core team. MHacks will be choosing a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place while sponsors will go around and judge those entering their categories.
