Hey High School and College Students! 

Are you interested in learning more about technology and improving your CS skills? Look no further, Elevate Tech has you covered!

We’re bringing back Elevate Hacks in August! Elevate Hacks is Elevate Tech’s beginner-friendly virtual #hackathon for #highschool and #college students of underrepresented gender identities (female and non-binary individuals). We encourage hackers to grow their tech skills with our inclusive, supportive community and we are passionate about addressing and combating disparities in #technology! 

Last summer, Elevate Hacks had 650+ attendees and 50+ project submissions! This year, we aim to increase our impact and uplift even more hackers, regardless of experience level! Join us in August as we #BlastOff and reach new heights with Elevate Hacks II with a chance to win really cool prizes! 

When you register, you have the chance to win one of four giveaways for $25 Starbucks and Amazon giftcards or a Polaroid camera!
