SocialJam is a one week hackathon where teams of 4 work together to create a product that helps humanity come together and break social boundaries. We want to keep the theme as open as possible because we want the competitors to imagine different ideas and solutions for various social problems that today’s society faces. This open-ended theme has proven successful for past hackathons including our annual MedApp Jam. SocialJam will promote group work and innovation by allowing teams an entire week to learn new technologies and to perfect their projects.


– The project must address a social issue that the team must state directly in their project description
– Projects can utilize any platform (i.e. website or mobile application) but must be made usable to judges during the judges phase
– Projects must be usable on a phone, tablet, desktop, or any other Wi-Fi enabled device
– If the project is a website, it must be able to run on all modern browsers (i.e. Chrome, IE10, Firefox, Safari)
