With the world facing an unprecedented challenge during the COVID-19 pandemic, people all around the world have been affected like never before. We thank those on the frontlines, from doctors and nurses to sanitation workers, who are doing everything they can to keep the world running as smoothly as possible. We want to help in any way we can — which is why we’re calling on the creators, hackers, and innovators of the world to band together and help those in need. 

SigmaHacks focuses on 3 main tracks: community, health, and productivity. Participants must develop projects in one or more of these tracks - more information at sigmahacks.org!

Just hack away, and let us help you bring your ideas to life!

Judging Criteria

  • Impact
    Does the project have any feasible application and/or have a social impact that goes above and beyond? Will this help the community with a real problem they are facing? Can this realistically be implemented?
  • Functionality & Quality
    Is the project free of major bugs? Does it look appealing? The UI/UX doesn’t have to be totally perfect, but if we're having a hard time understanding and/or navigating the project by looking at it, that is an issue.
  • Creativity
    Is this project unique and innovative? Is it a solution or creation we have never seen before? Does it improve upon a current solution or is it a better way of doing something?
  • Technical Complexity
    The team should display a good level of knowledge in terms of the technology they’ve used in implementing their project. The project should also be technically interesting and use appropriate technology to meet product needs.
