About the challenge
Helix Hacks is a hackathon designed to inspire and empower young coders to pursue and develop their programming skills. Over the course of 50 hours, teams of 2-4 participants will work to develop a software project that helps to solve a real-world problem.

What to Build
What you build is completely up to you - it can be an app, a website, a program or anything else that you code that addresses a real-world problem!
What to Submit
Submit your code via a github, repl, or other link. We also accept a zip folder, although a link would be preferred.
In addition to your project files, please submit a pitch video that explains the problem that you are addressing, how your project solves the problem, the obstacles you faced, your next steps, and any other additional details. The video must be 5 minutes or less (few seconds over is okay). We will release a presentation guide with more details and tips.
