As technology expands, it becomes more and more important for society to use modern tools to improve social welfare. From the regional to the national level, AYLUS has always striven to help communities and people in need.

The National AYLUS board designed AYLUS Humanity Hacks to create an environment where participants can devise technological solutions to current issues; projects should address topics like public health issues, lack of diversity, access to education, and other such societal issues. From 1pm EST on Dec. 18, 2021 to 1pm EST Dec. 19, 2021, participants will work individually or in teams of up to 4 to brainstorm and implement projects that will aid their community and promote social good. Underrepresented groups in tech are especially encouraged to apply, but all are welcome!

Our specific prize tracks will be environmentalism, public health, education, and diversity/accessibility. Check our "Prizes" tab for more info!

Make sure to join our Discord after signing up! Participants must fill out the sign-up form (on the side) to be eligible to compete.
