IMPORTANT Hackathon Rules Update!

Hi Girls in Tech Hackathon Participants,

Thank you for participating in the Girls in Tech Virtual Hackathon. Due to the US sanctions against Russia, Devpost rules have changed, and moving forward, Russian residents will be excluded from participation in all hackathons. Whether the hackathon you're currently participating in is open to submissions, in the judging phase, or payment phase, the Devpost rules will always apply. 

Please find the new Devpost rules below:

  •  B. The Hackathon IS NOT open to:
    Individuals who are residents of, or Organizations domiciled in, a country, state, province or territory where the laws of the United States or local law prohibits participating or receiving a prize in the Hackathon (including, but not limited to, Brazil, Quebec, Russia, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria and any other country designated by the United States Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control) - In accordance with US sanctions, Russia is no longer eligible to participate in this contest. Edited March 9, 2022.
