Hackathon Information

Our adventure-themed hackathon allows students of all levels of programming to come together and create a computer science solution to a current problem. We specifically target a wide skill range (from no programming knowledge to advanced programming knowledge). To support beginners, learning opportunities will be available throughout the hackathon. Opportunities include sponsor instruction, an industry computer scientist sharing their experience, and teachers introducing programming techniques/skills. We also plan to present step by step instruction to help you through every part of a hackathon.

Our Mission

We believe in the power of hackathons, but more importantly, we believe in the power of community. Once joined with like-minded people, programmers from different areas will receive the backing and assistance of hundreds of others who would have been otherwise unreachable. This is why we made Treasure Hacks: to gather both beginner and more experienced high-school programmers and create a growing community that will forever connected through programming and computer science.


Join students from all over the world in a collaborative community!

Any current high school student.

No prior experience is needed, but it would be beneficial for you to be able to complete a technical project by yourself or with a team. Because this hackathon allows you to enter as just a student instead of a competitor, you will be able to learn many of the skills you will need for future hackathons.

Nope! It’s completely free and includes all the assortments of prizes that you can win.

You will be able to find and form a team through Discord/Devpost when the hackathon begins.

The deadline is on October 15th at 11:59 pm PDT.
