Welcome to MLH Prime.
Are you ready for our season finale hackathon? We’ve invited our most respected community members from the past season to hack incredible projects. We can’t wait to see what you’ll build
All hacks and hackers at MLH Prime must abide by the MLH Code of Conduct.
Hackers must be in school/college/university or have graduated in the last year to be eligible to win. MLH staff and advisors are not eligible to compete for prizes, but may enter hacks in the event.
Hacks must be awesome, creative, and built on site at the event. All hacks must adhere to the MLH Code of Conduct to be eligible for presentation.

How technically impressive was the hack? Was the technical problem the team tackled difficult? Did it use a particularly clever technique or did it use many different components? Did the technology involved make you go "Wow"?
Did the team put thought into the user experience? How well designed is the interface? For a website, this might be about how beautiful the CSS or graphics are. For a hardware project, it might be more about how good the human-computer interaction is.
Does the hack work? Did the team achieve everything they wanted?
Did the team stretch themselves? Did they try to learn something new? What kind of projects have they worked on before? If a team which always does VR projects decides to switch up and try doing a mobile app instead, that exploration should be rewarded.
