Cutie Hack is a hybrid 12-hour, beginner-oriented hackathon hosted by students at the University of California, Riverside. Hackers are challenged with creating a cool project within the timeframe to demo in order to win awesome prizes. Cutie Hack will also be hosting informative workshops, fun games, and industry networking.
While this hackathon is created around beginners, we welcome anyone from any highschool or college no matter your experience level. Come on out and see what you can make!
Not interested in hacking but still want to participate? Great! We would love to have you on board. Fill out the forms below if you’d like to help hackers throughout the day!
Thank you to all of those who made this hackathon possible!

All you need is a working device (i.e your laptop or PC) and a stable internet connection. If you are attending online, create a Discord and/or Zoom to help you participate.
Where will we submit?
You will submit through Devpost. Further instructions will follow on the day-of the event.
What if I don't have a team?
If you don't have a team formed prior to Cutie Hack, we will have a channel on Discord where you can find other participants that share similar interests. We'll also be providing activities at the beginning of the event to help you form teams. Teams aren't required though, so feel free to work individually.
Do I have to hack or make a project?
Not at all! You can attend a workshop just to learn, network with fellow hackers, and participate in games and raffles. You'll be able to find the schedule on our website as we get closer to the event.
If I'm residing outside of the U.S., can I still attend and/or win a prize?
Those outside of the U.S. can still attend, compete, and win. However, due to shipping restrictions and COVID, we won’t be able to send any physical items to those residing outside of the U.S.
