Southern California's first all-female high school hackathon!
AIHacks is a student-run hackathon for high school females with a focus on artificial intelligence (AI).

Submitting to this hackathon could earn you:
Age: high school students
Gender: female (trans and non-binary inclusive)
Team Size: If you have a team of 2-4, great! If not, don't worry! Many of our participants apply without a team, and you will have the opportunity to form teams at AIHacks.
Students will work in teams of 2-4 to create either an app or website to solve a real-world problem. They will also create Google Slides presentations and pitch their projects to the judges on Sunday.
On Devpost, submit the following:
1) your code
2) a 50-100 word project description
3) your presentation (a link to your Google Slides document or pdf)
