Canada's Biggest MLH Certified HS Hackathon

Welcome to MasseyHacks IV, Canada’s biggest MLH high school hackathon. At this event, hundreds of high school students from Canada and parts of the US come together at Vincent Massey Secondary School to experiment, connect and create in 24 hours. We hope you're as excited as we are for an awesome weekend!

After the Saturday kickoff, all teams are allowed to begin working on their apps. You can then submit your app using the above Submissions tab (which will appear after you hit the Register button). All submissions must be in by 11:00 AM Sunday (April 29th).

Once hacking ends, hackers will take their apps into the designated judging area for the judges to examine.

Hack the North Prize

What did you learn this weekend? If at least half of the hackers on your team have never attended a university hackathon, we'd love to meet you and hear more about what you built! We'll invite one of the teams that chats with us to build a new project at Hack the North in September.
