We are Purdue's Freshman Only Hackathon! We are dedicated to mentoring freshman while getting them involved in hacker culture and the Purdue CS community. We spend time introducing freshman to hackathons and how they work and give them their first taste of hackathons.


Hello World is open to Purdue's freshmen and first-time hackers.


Submit your project on here! Make sure it is the project you worked on during Hello World not before! Also please remember to list all the members of your team so we know who contributed.

The final deadline for submissions is 12:00 PM, October 18th. After that, you will not be able to submit your projects and be eligible for prizes.
