Mississippi State Libraries to host Innovate State Hackathon on October 29

September 2, 2022

Mississippi State students are invited to show off their skills and learn new ones at the Innovate State Hackathon. This 24-hour event takes place on October 29. Small teams of coders and makers compete to create winning projects. Teams can access makerspaces on campus and The Idea Shop in downtown Starkville. Electronic components and lumber will be provided.

All current MSU students are eligible, regardless of major or classification. Participants will be grouped into up to 10 teams of 2-6 students per team. Students who don’t have a team will be matched with other participants looking for a team. Team registration is $25, and single registration is $5; registration fees are charged to the student’s student account. Prizes were donated by the Bagley College of Engineering, MSU Libraries and the MSU Center for Entrepreneurship & Outreach. Prizes are 1st Place - $1,000; 2nd Place - $500; 3rd Place - $250.
