Carroll's First Hackathon

Ever wondered what’s possible in a weekend? We are going to find out in the Carroll County Hackathon!

Teams of 3-5 high school or college students will compete to see who can build the best application. Bring a team or come solo and find a team at the start of the competition.

Don't know how to code? That is okay! The competition is focused on other aspects, including design, business, and marketing.

Participants should come ready to identify a problem, design a solution, and build an app - all in a weekend! These apps may go on to change the world or maybe just Carroll County.

The Carroll County Hackathon is hosted by MAGIC. It is sponsored by McDaniel College and Bytelion.
