Juni Hackathon Winners: February 2020

Juni Learning's Hackathon Winners: February 2020

February 2020 - Winter Wonderland

We just wrapped up our second Hackathon here at Juni, and were completely blown away by everyone’s enthusiasm! Our participants came from over 30 different states, with diverse teams from every grade level. Hundreds of students put their wintery imaginations to work, creating projects like amazing ice mazes to fun penguin defense games.

Needless to say, it was harder than ever to pick only 3 winners from each league. Our judges spent hours carefully reviewing each and every individual and team submission. Each submission was evaluated using our four key grading criteria—code quality, complexity, creativity, and presentation. Even if you didn't place in this Hackathon, we highly encourage all students to continue their amazing work and compete again in our next Hackathon.

Thank you everyone, and be sure to register for our next Hackathon! We'll be holding a series of Hackathons this year, so stay tuned.

Announcing our February Hackathon Winners!

We’re excited to present to you our winners for each league below, and congratulate them for their amazing work.

What is the Juni Hackathon?

Hackathons are an invaluable experience for engineers of all backgrounds. They give both advanced and new coders the opportunity to collaborate with others, show off their creative skills, and learn from hands-on experience.

However, Hackathons are often day-long events limited to college students or adults, and held at physical venues that can be hard for some to attend. Despite all odds, Juni was determined to make the hackathon experience accessible for passionate young coders all over the country.

And thus, the Juni Hackathon was born!

What’s great about our Hackathon?

  • Free to compete
  • 100% online - you only need a computer and internet connection!
  • Open to various ages, and levels of coding experience
  • Win prizes!

Register for our next Hackathon now to be the first to know our project prompts. Our February 2020 Hackathon marks the start of our upcoming 2020 Hackathon series.
