Opening Event

Welcome to the Florida CSTA Hackathon page!

Sponsored by Microsoft TEALS and CSX, the CSTA Hackathon is a virtual event where participants form teams, vet ideas, create a project, and then submit a video of their work to an expert panel of judges.

The project must include computer programing and is open to any programming language. The actual challenge will be reveled on Monday December 6th. Hint: Check out our sponsors for the theme ;)

Teams will consist of 3-5 middle and/or high school students and one adult sponsor, and winners will walk away with a combination of cash and CSX Swag!

This year our hackathon will take place starting December 6th, 2021, and winners will be announced by Wednesday December 15th, 2021.
