"Empire City Hackathon is more than just an opportunity to give back to the community that has given us so much. It demonstrates that while means may be concentrated at the top, dreams aren't. Everyone has a world-changing idea somewhere in their mind."

- Entry is only open to residents of NYC's five boroughs who are currently enrolled in high school. There is no age or citizenship requirement.
