Hackathon Information

Our hackathon allows students of all levels of programming to come together and create a computer science solution to a current problem. We target a wide skill range (from no programming knowledge to advanced programming knowledge). Our 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 be connected through programming and computer science.


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

Categories and Prizes



A hackathon is a collaborative event where many people come together to collaborate and compete using computer programming.

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 March 25th at 4:00 PM PST.

This hackathon is a MLH Event. In addition to our hackathon rules, please make sure to follow the MLH Code of Conduct at all times.

Each team can have a maximum of four people.

We are located in California so we will be running off of PST.
