Huskie Hack

Northern Illinois University’s Office of Innovation will be hosting a hackathon for students 18 and over on November 5-6th, 2022 on the DeKalb campus. The overarching theme is Sustainability with an emphasis on the future of food systems and its challenges. We are inviting students from around the Midwest region to form multidisciplinary teams of 4 to 6 members to take a crack at solving problem sets focused around those challenges. We would love to welcome student teams from your institution to participate in what we think will be an amazing and rewarding event! There is no cost to register and winning project ideas will receive exciting prizes! 

This isn’t a traditional hackathon that just focuses on coding, but one that focuses on solution-based ideas – Students from all disciplines will be asked to explore the topic, understand the problem sets, and use the knowledge and expertise from industry and university mentors and specialists before pitching their solutions to the judges.
