byteKode is an online student-led hackathon that is meant for anyone in high school looking to broaden their utilization of code. Our hackathon's mission is to showcase how beginner programmers can use code outside of the classroom to create meaningful projects. Even experienced students will be able to use their existing knowledge, while also expanding their knowledge using new resources and meeting new people.

** Please note - physical prizes (swag boxes/bags) may only be available to those residing in Canada and the United States. The same applies for some of the digital prizes (paid services from sponsors)

PLEASE NOTE: Hacks made from other hackathons are allowed to be submitted as long as they are created within the same timeframe (JULY 2nd - JULY 4th) and follow the theme(s) of our hackathon. Moreover, any hacks not created within this timeframe will be auto-disqualified.
