BroncoHack is a 24 hour hackathon where teams of students use their computer programming and business skills to create a program or application centered around a social issue.

BroncoHack, the OMIS Student Network's third annual hackathon, is a competition where teams of students use their computer programming and business knowledge to create a program or application in 24 hours.

Requirements

BroncoHack offers competitors the chance to not only build a project that is innovative in the arenas of business and technology, but one that addresses our theme of social justice. We want our participants to look at the broader impact of their work. The OMIS Student Network doesn't support the idea that technology has reached the zenith of its use when someone is willing to pay the creator for it. We want our participants to examine the social injustices that are present in our world and to try their hand at reversing them through the power of applied technology.
