The WyoHackathon Entry Rules - Are you Qualified Properly?

Hello Competitors,

While the rules have been posted, it's apparent some may not have actually read that by signing up for the WyoHackathon, you agreed to them.  A few are key ones are: 

  • Only one Entry per team per challenge
  • You cannot reuse a project started before the WyoHackathon Sept 25, 2020

We have disqualified several entries based on these alone, and judges will be looking deeply into your project to see if they qualify.  If you believe you no longer qualify, you should withdraw before judging.

IMPORTANT READ: VIRTUAL Wyoming Blockchain Stampede

Hello Friends,

 

We know many of you want to attend the Wyoming Blockchain Stampede and WyoHackathon events in person like we have in pre-COVID times.  So do we!

Alas, we must call it at this time as a VIRTUAL ONLY event.  We cannot know with enough certainty whether UW will be under any COVID gathering restrictions where attendees do not exceed the ability to provide the physical spacing required by state health orders nor exceed the maximum attendees allowed together at an indoor…
