Judging a High School Hackathon - StuyHacks VIII

Today I got to be a judge at StuyHacks VIII. This isn't the first time I've been a judge there, I've been doing it for a few years now. I've also been lucky enought to have been asked to judge a handful of other local hackathons over the years. StuyHacks is a high school hackathon organized and run by students at Stuyvesant High School. Since it's run by students, the cast of organizers regularly changes.

Thoughts On A Hackathon

Yesterday I was one of the judges at StuyHacks. A one day hackathon at Stuyvesant run by and organized by the students. I don't have attendee stats but there were kids from all over the city and at least one team from New Jersey. The youngest student that I met was in sixth grade and the oldest were high school seniors. The judging was at the end but I decided to stop by earlier to see how the hackers were doing.
