York College hackathon secures partnership with Major League Hacking for event on Nov. 4-6
YCP Hacks has partnered with Major League Hacking (MLH) for York College's sixth annual hackathon event. MLH is the official student hackathon league, empowering over 200 events annually around the world to inspire innovation and creativity.
YCP Hacks is York College's annual student-led hackathon. During this annual 40-hour event, students from across the world come to York College to create something new, provide innovative solutions for real world problems (or hacks), learn from experienced professors and subject matter experts, connect with industry, and win a variety of prizes.
“A connection with MLH allows us to not only elevate our event for our participants, but also reach a wider audience,” said Oscar Winters, Associate Director of Entrepreneur Programs and Engagement at York College. “We're thrilled to have their capacity and expertise to assist with our growing event."
David McHugh, a senior computer science major from Harrisburg, is the student lead for YCP Hacks. “I have been working with the team since 2019,” said McHugh. “Partnering with MLH is definitely something that I'm proud to bring to our event.”
YCP Hacks is open to all students enrolled in higher education and will take place on Nov. 4, 5, and 6 in the Willman Business Center at York College.
