XXHacks is a 12-hour hackathon for high school girls who will work collaboratively to design a website or mobile application that addresses a real world challenge.

Our event is completely free—food, swag, and prizes included—and will take place on Saturday, February 18, 2017 at the Symantec World Headquarters in Mountain View, CA.

We have a ton of cool prizes lined up--including Kate Spade merch, free Sketch App licenses, and more!
