HowdyHack is Texas A&M's 24-hour, beginner-friendly, Aggie-only hackathon taking place both in-person and virtually. Hackers at HowdyHack will brainstorm, build, and break their product before they'll submit it to a panel of judges for evaluation and hopefully win some cool prizes.
Beyond hacking, HowdyHack is about connecting creative and talented Aggie hackers with each other. We want to give hackers the creative space to showcase their skills and create something amazing while getting to know fellow hackers with the same Aggie pride!

Teams should be a maximum of 4 hackers.
If your team is participating virtually then you must submit a youtube link of your project demo of max 3 minutes.
If your team has a combination of in-person and virtual hackers then you have the option to demo either in-person or submit a video.
You can only submit a project that is built during this time period. Additionally, you cannot submit this project to any other hackathon.
