Submitting to this hackathon could earn you:
If you applied to Hack@MSIT, recieved an invite to attend and went on to confirm that you will do so, you are eligible to attend Hack@MSIT. If you attended and hacked at Hack@MSIT, then you are eligible to make a submission.
Make your project, submit your hack to Devpost and attend the Hack@MSIT expo to show off what you built. You must demo at the expo and submit on Devpost in order to be eligible for prizes.
Is the hack technically interesting or difficult? Is it just some lipstick on an API, or were there real technical challenges to surmount? This is the most important criterion that your hack will be judged upon for the general prizes.
Is the hack more than just another generic social/mobile/local app? Does it do something entirely novel, or at least take a fresh approach to an old problem?
Is the hack usable in its current state? Is the user experience smooth? Does everything appear to work? Is it well designed?
Is the hack practical? Is it something people would actually use? Does it fulfill a real need people have?
How was the demo? Was the hack working - or at least in a state where the hackers could show off their idea? Keep in mind that the process is important, and that we are judging what happened at the hackathon, not what the hackers are planning to do after.
