A hackathon is a place to create.

Working together with a team, you will have 24 hours to create something: website, app, game, anything. You’ll then present your creation to a panel of judges.

A hackathon is a place to learn.

For the beginner coders, we provide workshops. These workshops are designed so you can learn a new skill. For veteran hackers, industry programmers will be available as mentors. These mentors are a way to learn what happens in real life.


A hackathon is a place to have fun.

Meals, snacks, and swag are all provided β€” free of charge. Special breakouts are planned to give your mind (and fingers!) a break.

How long is CincyHacks?

You will have 24 hours to work on your projects at CincyHacks. We will also have activities before and after the block of coding, so expect to be there from Saturday afternoon to Sunday evening.

Where is CincyHacks?

CincyHacks will be hosted in Mason, Ohio, at William Mason High School! We will be using the front entrance for our check-in, located at 6100 Mason Montgomery Rd, Mason, OH 45040.

Who can come to CincyHacks?

Any current high school student is welcome to come to CincyHacks β€” all we ask is that you bring a school issued ID with you. Additionally, teachers and parents are welcome to come to the final awards ceremony.

Do I need to know how to code?

CincyHacks is completely beginner friendly β€” coders of all skill levels are welcome to come learn or create something new!

What should I bring?

At the minimum, you'll need a student ID, laptop, and charger. We also recommend bringing a change of clothes, toiletries, and a sleeping bag or pillow. You won't be able to leave CincyHacks after the event starts, so make sure you have any medications you'll need.

Is there any travel assistance?

Unfortunately, we cannot directly provide travel reimbursement for our participants at this time. But you can apply for Execute Big's Travel Grant, so you can join us without having to pay for travel!

Our Team

Last year, we ran Hack Cincinnati, Cincinnati’s largest high school hackathon. This year, we’re bringing it back home: we're bringing together leaders from all over Cincinnati to run an event for 100 high school programmers, hackers, and designers.
