Hack a Bit offers high school students the opportunity to learn to hack and break things in a safe ethical environment. The competition teaches bright young people how to make the world a safer place by fundamentally learning how hackers do what they do. Many competitions miss the fact that most young people don't have a background in this stuff and so Hack a Bit focuses on providing an educational track alongside the competition. If you are interested and motivated, you will be competitive!
Winners take home prize money (from a $5k pool) as well as gear, digital books, and vouchers from our sponsors. The winners (you!) also have the opportunity to connect with industry professionals who are desperately in need of technical expects.
Interested students can pre-register for the competition now!
For the competition year 2022, you must be at least 13 years of age on the first day of competition and may not be older than 18. All finalists will be verified prior to the last round. For more information on eligibility and terms of service please check out the signup section of the competition page for details. While the competition staff is looking into offering entry to teams, this first year will be limited to individual participation.
Awards, Prizes & Advancement
Registration is $25 USD and ensures access to at least two rounds of competition with the possibility of advancement to finals depending on placement. Aside from the $5k USD prize pool, every competitor will receive the competition swag package. The competition sponsors are also graciously offering awesome prizes from their organizations such as hacking hardware, digital books, and even hacking lab vouchers. The top quarter of competitors will proceed to the finals round, meaning that there will be 250 seats advancing in the first year. These will be distributed based on events in the Discord server!
