Hyland Hackathon


We're excited to invite high school and college students to spend a weekend participating in our first completely virtual Hyland Hackathon March 13-14, 2021!


Are you a student who loves tech? Whether you’re a seasoned hacker or a curious beginner, we’re looking for creative thinkers with a passion for innovation to join us for the 2021 Virtual Hyland Hackathon. This event will take place entirely online, with Zoom Webinar being used periodically throughout the event.

If you've never been to a hackathon before, we encourage you to read up on these kinds of events before participating. Experienced IT Professionals will be available to help mentor you throughout the hackathon. 

High School and College teams will be judged separately as two main groups. There will be prizes for the top teams from each group.

There will be an optional theme for teams to follow. This allows for teams to utilize the theme if wanted with their projects, but there will be no penalty for not following the theme. There will be Hyland Mentors on hand to help with idea generation and brainstorming.
