ServiceNow has volunteered the prize money, learning platform, and infrastructure to host the Hackathon and choose a winning team.

  • 5 weeks of self-paced training on the ServiceNow Platform
  • One week hackathon with teams of 5 to build an app
  • Weekly review check-ins

What are the Prizes?
  • 1st Place Team Prize of $40k
  • 2nd Place Team Prize of $20k
  • Raffle prizes throughout the 6 weeks
  • Connect with ServiceNow Recruiters for Internship and Job Opportunities
