Canada's First Student Hackathon for Change
We want to encourage students of all fields to come together and build real world applications to create positive change. The ultimate goal behind this hackathon is to include not only the engineering and computer science students, but talented students from other faculties as well.

Level of Impact
Score out of 5. How much would others benefit from this hack? A perfect score would create a significant impact within the hack’s target demographic. A score of 1 would not provide any sort of impact to the hack’s target demographic.
Score out of 5. A perfect score would mean the hack was challenging in technical difficulty and would be hard to replicate in 24 hours. A score of 1 would be a very basic hack involving very little technical skill.
Creativity / Originality
Score out of 4. A perfect score would mean the hack was really unique and provided a surprise factor. A score of 1 would mean the hack already exists. This doesn't mean that hacks cannot improve upon existing ideas though.
Score out of 3. A perfect score would mean the hack is ready to be deployed immediately and a score of 1 would mean the has a prototype which will sometimes work.
MUST BE COMPLETE
All hacks must be able to demo. Pitching ideas or concepts does not count.
