Project Submission and Judging


After coding ends, at noon on Sunday, you will have the opportunity to present your project to a panel of judges. These judges are industry professionals, professors, alumni, and fellow students who will evaluate your project based on the following criteria:

  • Creativity: How original is your hack? Is this a novel idea or something that many people have come across?
  • Practical & Useful: What problem do you want to solve? How applicable is your hack to problems we're facing today?
  • Technical Difficulty: How technically challenging is it? Which technologies did you use?
  • User Experience: What impression do you get from the hack? Does it provide for a smooth user experience?
  • Future Plans: Does it have ways it can be improved upon for the future?


HackRPI uses Devpost to manage project submissions. You will need to create a Devpost account and submit your project to the HackRPI 2024 hackathon page. Make sure to include a title, description, demo video, and any other relevant information about your project.

You can submit your project at any time before 11:00 AM on Sunday. You must have a Devpost submission to be eligible for judging. You can edit your project submission until 12:00 PM on Sunday.

After noon, you will not be able to make any changes to your project or your submission. Judging begins immediately after the submission deadline. You must be present at the event to give a live demo and explain your project to the judges.

Devpost link will be added here soon!
