About the challenge
The Young Youth Innovators Fall 2023 hackathon is a challenge for young innovators to use their skills and creativity to come up with solutions that address pressing issues facing our world. The hackathon is centered around four categories: sustainability, education, health and wellness, and social justice. Participants will be encouraged to think outside the box and develop innovative ideas that can make a positive impact in their communities and beyond.
The challenge will provide participants with an opportunity to develop valuable skills such as problem-solving, teamwork, and communication, while also gaining experience in using technology to address real-world problems. Participants will be supported by mentors and industry experts who will provide guidance and feedback throughout the hackathon.
