The organizers of the hackathon, the Science and Technology Park of Montenegro, the Innovation Fund, and ICT Cortex, invite all interested high school students to apply for the hackathon and actively participate in creating an innovative environment and improving educational conditions in Montenegro.

Teams composed of a minimum of three students who regularly attend any high school in Montenegro can apply for the hackathon. Team members do not have to be students from the same school, in fact, it is desirable for team members to come from different schools.

The platform is user-friendly, and technical knowledge is not required to participate; you only need a good team and innovative ideas!

Teams that pass the preselection process will participate in a 48-hour final online competition, where they will have the opportunity to improve their idea with the help of mentors and prepare for the final presentation before the jury.

The prize fund for the hackathon is provided by the “Čini dobro” Foundation and the Science and Technology Park of Montenegro for the top three solutions:

•1st prize: 500 euros

•2nd prize: 300 euros

•3rd prize: 200 euros

In addition, all participants will have the opportunity to network with other creative individuals, industry experts, and potential employers.
