Call for Code Howard Hackathon 2021 Registration

The Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U), in partnership with IBM and Howard University, will host a virtual Hackathon from March 26 to April 1, 2021. This challenge provides participants with opportunities to showcase their coding expertise, expand their professional portfolios, and digitally connect with a cohort of students dedicated to addressing global challenges. Registered students will have the opportunity to have their ideas assessed by an esteemed panel of judges including Chelsea Clinton.

This year’s focus for undergraduate and graduate student designers from across academic disciplines is to develop unique digital prototypes and tools that help build more resilient communities impacted by climate change and tackle environmental injustices.

The event will commence at 7:00 pm ET Friday, March 26 when participants will receive the latest updates on IBM's Call for Code, hear welcome remarks, and virtually engage with one another. Students will then begin brainstorming their ideas with the help of CGI U, IBM, and Howard staff. By April 1, teams will submit their ideas to a panel of expert judges working in the fields of climate change, environmental justice, technology, and social innovation.

Register today! The deadline to register is Friday, March 26, 2021.

Please note, you must be currently enrolled at a college or university at the time of registration to be eligible for this opportunity.
