HackMIT '20 Mentor and Judging Application
We are looking for mentors and judges for this year's hackathon! This year, HackMIT will be different--we'll be launching virtually with thousands of participants, speakers, and sponsors across the globe.
What you'll do as a mentor: To make it the best experience possible, we need your help to guide our hackers and help them work through the problems they are hoping to solve throughout the event. Mentors will select shifts during which they will respond to hackers' help requests, ranging from industry-specific questions to helping beginners build their first web app. Using HelpQ, a mentoring system developed by HackMIT, mentors will be able to take students off a virtual queue to answer their questions.
What you'll do as a judge: Judges will be responsible for viewing and selecting the most extraordinary projects from our HackMIT 2020 submissions on Sunday, Sep. 20 11-1pm EDT. We are asking judges to commit at least one hour of their time towards this event. Using Ballot, a scheduled judging platform developed by HackMIT, judges will rank projects they are scheduled to view in 10-minute time slots to determine which projects will be eligible to win our top prizes. Our judges will also be required to attend a mandatory orientation session on Saturday, Sep. 19 (time TBD) to familiarize themselves with out judging criteria and platform.
IMPORTANT: If you commit to a time slot, it is incredibly important that you show up on time as hackers will be waiting in their virtual rooms as soon as judging starts!
By becoming a mentor or judge, you'll not only have the opportunity to see incredible projects that will go on to become the best startups in the technology world, you'll also receive the full benefits of attending HackMIT, including access to workshops, tech talks, and other auxiliary events!
