FHS.hacks() is Franklin High School’s annual hackathon. A hackathon is an opportunity where students get together to develop creative solutions to real-world problems. During the hackathon, students will get access to mentors, workshops, other student coders, as well as “hacking” time to turn their ideas into reality. FHS.hacks() is open to all high school students from anywhere in the US with competitive and innovative spirits. Whether you’re a new coder or a seasoned hacker, come join the FHS WARRIORS for a weekend of learning, connection, and fun!


You must be a high school student to be eligible for prizes, but we do welcome others to join the workshops


Please submit a video demo of your project that is no more than 2 minutes and a link to a public GitHub repository with all the code that was used to create the project. All code must be started and finished within the hackathon time frame
