Getting Started

1.1. Select ONE track with your team: Technologies for Education, Technologies for the Environment, or Technologies for the Elderly. Projects may not enter in multiple tracks. If your project spans multiple tracks, choose one and only one to compete in.

1.2. Research. Find a relevant local dataset for the track you have chosen.

1) Local refers to the city/town/county level.
2) Sourcing your data. Your data may come from any of the following sources:
a. Publicly Available: you must include a working link to the raw dataset.
b. Semi-Publicly Available (i.e. anyone can request it): include a link to request the dataset and the full name and email address of the person who helped you acquire the dataset.
c. Original Data: If your issue does not have well-documented datasets available, talk to local community leaders to gather your own data around your issue. Provide documentation on your findings, including the contact information for those you speak to.

1.3. Analyze your dataset to identify a problem within your chosen track.
Your problem identification must include statistics and analysis to illustrate the scope and quantitative impact of the problem.

1.4. Propose a solution to your identified problem.
1) Build a prototype in code demonstrating your proof of concept.
2) Examples include building a web app, mobile app, or data visualization tool.

2. Entry Rules for Open Round

- Each team must submit a two-page maximum summary of the project summarizing the steps taken to solve the problem and why the solution to the problem is beneficial to the community.

- The summary must be written in 11 point Times New Roman font and be 1.5x spaced. Teams must adhere to a half-inch margin on all sides of each page.

- Teams may choose to include graphics when deemed fit, but all graphics must be of reasonable, readable size and adhere to the half-inch margin required on each side of the page.
 All images used should reflect your original work.

- To allow for anonymous grading, please leave all personal identifiers off the submission. Be sure to include the Team ID in the upper-left header of the submission, as we will be using this as the main source of identification.

- Teams should clearly identify the problem they choose to solve, including a summary of how they developed their solution and why the problem they chose can have an impact on the community.

- Refer to the template of the two-page summary.

- The name of your PDF submission MUST be as follows:
   <Track Number, 01, 02, or 03>-<Team ID Number> e.g. 01-3164352
   Failure to follow this formatting may result in delays in grading your submission.

4. Academic Integrity

The HackHarvard Global Hackathon, like universities and workspaces across the nation, expects that students hold themselves to rigorous ethical standards, both academic and personal. Responsibility for integrity in scholarship is inherently the scholar’s, including the applicant. Students must be responsible for all aspects of their work’s authenticity: the research, the application, and all other documentation, excluding creating the data, which should be made from publically available datasets. If data is found to not be from a publically-available data set, but rather a private data set, or obtained in other means, HackHarvard Global reserves the right to cancel your submission with no questions asked. All work must be exclusively the work of the applicants in substance and in presentation. If a determination is made at any point that an entrant has violated rules and/or misrepresented work or attribution thereof, HackHarvard Global reserves the right to disqualify the entry, withhold and/or withdraw monetary awards and/or exclude the entrant from participating in other programs.

5. Additional Submission Questions

In addition to submitting the final copy of your submission, the Hackathon will ask miscellaneous demographic and categorization questions, such as:

- Where do you currently reside?
- Are you currently enrolled in high school? If so, provide it’s name and street address.
- Are you currently enrolled in a college/university? If so, provide its name and street address.
- Are you currently in the workforce? If so, provide your company name and street address.

So that the organizers can get an accurate sense of the makeup of this competition. Your answers will be kept confidential and will not impact the quantitative scoring of your submissions, but are necessary to the running of this competition.
