About HawkHacks

A brief history of this competition


In 2017, members of a club called HCHS Code 4 Change held the original HawkHacks. It was a day-long hacking and coding event held at Hunter College High School.

In early 2021, during the COVID-19 pandemic, another HCHS club called Hunter Data Analytics for Change—whose board includes one original member of C4C—decided to revive the competition.


HawkHacks 2021 will consist of the following events. Each event has a few links where you can find resources and information.

  1. Sat 5/1/2021: Idea-based hackathon (FAQ // Ideathon Process Info)
  2. Postponed: Capture the flag (FAQ)


A huge thank you to everyone helping out to make HawkHacks an awesome experience!
