We started as the first High School Hackathon in Michigan, with the goal of bringing together both experienced and beginner programmers. We want to encourage students everywhere to develop skills in computer science by creating tangible products that they're proud of. In addition, we would like to encourage students to learn a new skill or become more familiarized with the field of computer science through our workshops!

This year, we're happy to announce that NHacks 2020 will be held online! Submissions will be held through devpost, and workshops will be conducted through Zoom. Remeber to signup at our google form to register and join our discord to receive important updates and to find teammates. If you have any questions, feel free to email us at: nhacks.contact@gmail.com
