LancerHacks is a 12-hour student-run high school hackathon hosted by sfhacks, the Programming Club at Saint Francis High School in Mountain View, CA. On April 21, 2018, ~100 students will work in teams (of up to 4 students) on innovative projects while completing tasks for their respective factions. At LancerHacks, hackers are grouped into four factions, which will battle it out in cybersecurity Capture the Flag contests, competitive programming competitions, and more! Students from all over the Bay Area are invited to compete in our second full-scale event!


Participants (grades 8-12) compete in teams of up to 5 individuals. (Know that a maximum of four awards will be given to winning teams, so not every member may receive an award for teams of 5.)
