EMPOWERING HBCU STUDENTS: The BE Smart Hackathon Cultivating Tomorrow’s Tech Leaders.
As our event is nearing capacity, any further applications will be subject at review and approval by September 30th.
The BE Smart Hackathon is designed to equip students from historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) with the necessary skills to become dynamic leaders in technology. This event offers valuable opportunities for participants to forge connections, receive mentorship, and enhance their résumés with meaningful experiences. By joining this Hackathon, attendees will not only engage in friendly competition but also have the chance to showcase their technical skills and gain practical knowledge in utilizing emergent APIs. A panel of judges will evaluate student teams based on the app’s feasibility, its usefulness for individual users, and the effectiveness of the underlying technological platform.
