Girls in Tech Virtual Hackathon Important Updates

Hi Girls in Tech Community,

We are two weeks away from the beginning of our Girls in Tech Mental Health for All Virtual Hackathon. Please see below for a few important updates from the team.


  • If you haven’t done so already, please join our Slack Workspace to find teammates, resources, and more.


  • The challenges alongside other information and the submission portal for our Virtual Hackathon can be found here.

Team Formation

If you haven’t fully formed your team yet and happen to be a team lead or are part of a team that is missing integral team member skill sets, we recommend that you do the following:

  • Introduce Yourself in the #find-teammates channel in our Slack Workspace
  • Let others know what project you and your team plan to work on and the type of support you’re looking for (i.e. UX Designers, Software Developers, Data Scientists, Project Manager, etc.)
  • Keep an eye out for Slack updates in case individuals reply to your thread and would like to join your team.
  • You also review the Devpost participant section to find team members through this method as not all participants joined the Slack Workspace.


Feel free to post any questions in the discussion forum and someone from our team will get back to you within 24hrs.

All the best, 
Your Girls in Tech Team
