      CodeCrew's 5th Annual Hackathon

      The CodeCrew Hackathon is the finale to our exciting summer of code!  This unique TWO-DAY event provides an opportunity for kids to show off their mobile app development skills and work on a real-world project to benefit our community. Students will be placed into teams and challenged to use computer science skills to solve a local community issue. Hackathon participants will work all day Saturday and will come back on Sunday, to complete their apps. They will be supported by volunteers from the Memphis tech community. To keep everyone excited, focused, and motivated, CodeCrew is leaning on a fantastic support team and special guests.  On Sunday, participants will make presentations to a team of distinguished judges and guests and will compete for third, second, and first place!  In addition to getting this awesome chance to show off their creativity, skills and team spirit, participants will also compete for some serious prizes. One kid will also get a chance to win the most prestigious award of the event for working hard, trying harder, and showing great support for their team! What could their prize be?! The event is open to all current and former CodeCrew participants and any other interested students entering grades 5-12. CodeCrew is a Start Co Sky High initiative co-founded by Meka Egwuekwe, Petya Grady, and Audrey Jones-Willis. Please print and sign the Media Release Form, and bring it to the event at Registration.
