Interested in a chance to win a substantial cash prize while using your creativity, technology and teamwork skills? Register to compete against other schools in the Dominion Enterprises HackU competition. 

To finalize your registration, please click here.

Teams of 4-5 students will be tasked with building, designing and developing innovative working computer programs and products. The theme this year is focused on challenges proposed by DE businesses utilizing Dominion Enterprises data resources with external APIs. 

You can register as a team of 4–5 students or sign up as an individual and we will match you with other team members. Any major is welcome to register, and it is recommended that your team consist of students who represent computer science, graphic design, and marketing.

During the competition you will be matched with Dominion Enterprises IT, marketing, and graphic design professionals who will coach you through the process. Back-end coding skills are imperative in creating the apps, marketing skills are needed to promote them, and graphic design is important in making the apps visually appealing to users.

**Please note you will be responsible for your own travel to and from Norfolk and any coursework you miss while attending the competition. Students are able to apply to our Career Opportunity Fund for funding assistance.** All meals are provided during that time.

Registration Deadline: January 5, 2018
Event Dates: February 22-23, 2018
Location: Dominion Enterprises, 150 Granby Street, 20th Floor, Downtown Norfolk
