About TeenHacks LI

TeenHacks LI is Long Island’s only active 24-hour high school hackathon, by students, for students. We have a mission to build a community of student programmers here on Long Island, with an emphasis placed on innovation and entrepreneurship. Our first event ran in September 2018 with over 60 participants from all over New York and even some from as far as Maryland. Next, we ran our second event in May 2019, with over 200 participants from as far as Michigan!

In Fall 2019, we plan to have a bigger and better hackathon with even more participants. This means we also need a passionate team of organizers to help make this possible. We need help with everything such as: student outreach, media relations, sponsorship outreach, speaker/mentor recruitment, general logistics, marketing, web design, and much more.
