What's Hack OC?

Hack OC is the first in-person high school hackathon after the pandemic in Orange County, California. We're inviting you and all high schoolers to participate in 12 hours of coding, building, learning, and sharing. Whether you're technical and experienced or haven't ever written a line of code, Hack OC will be a fun and welcoming event for everyone.

What's a "hackathon"?

Hackathons are in-person coding events where teenagers come together to learn new skills, create fun projects, and make memories. There's also food, snacks, and drinks to fuel your creativity. Instead of hacking bank accounts like you hear in the news, you'll build something meaningful to you.

Who can participate in Hack OC?

We're inviting all high school students to participate in Hack OC completely free. If you'd still like to support us, however, you can donate here. Since this hackathon is geared toward just high school students, we aren't allowing any college students or older to participate.

Will there be prizes? 👀

Yes! We're thrilled about them and can't wait to make an announcement soon. More about judging and prizes will be shared closer to the event. Why not drop your email so we can let you know? We promise it's worth your time!


Hack OC wouldn't be possible without help from our sponsors. Want to help make Hack OC incredible? Email us at team@hackoc.org or check out our prospectus to get involved!
