HackTJ is a student-run annual event that brings together high school students together to code their ideas into life. Student teams have 24 hours to develop and build a new application or program with awards being given for outstanding apps, innovation, and design. The event welcomes novice coders as well as more experienced programmers. Mentors (often TJ alum) and sponsor representatives are on-site to host workshops and offer guidance to HackTJ participants.
As a make-up for HackTJ 7.0's in-person cancellation in March 2020, HackTJ 7.5 was held virtually December 12th-13th, 2020. HackTJ 8.0 is due to be held April 10th-11th, 2021.
