Compete in a hybrid of online to on-site cybersecurity events during Gannon’s Hackathon for the chance to win a full-tuition scholarship.

Do you have what it takes?


Gannon University welcomes you to participate in our inaugural Hackathon series. These events give participants experience in securing a machine, as well as conducting and reacting to the sort of attacks found in the real world. The jeopardy-style competition involves multiple categories of problems, each of which contains a variety of questions of different point values and difficulties.

Registration below is for the online Hackathon events. You may only register and participate in one of the two online events.

The online events will serve as a gateway to be invited to an on-campus Hackathon on Saturday, May 4, 2019 and for the opportunity to win either a full-tuition scholarship or other scholarship dollars to Gannon University. Only the top finishers of the online Hackathon events will be invited to the on-campus event.

Who: Competitors must be current high school students to register.

First time competing? No problem! This competition is designed for students of all cybersecurity skill levels. Competitors will receive instructions at the start of the Hackathon to guide you through challenges of varying difficulty. Students will be given clues to solve tasks tailored to both first-time gamers and experienced competitors. Expand your cybersecurity knowledge while earning points and the chance to win a full-tuition scholarship!
