HackGT 7 Cheating Policy

By submitting your project to HackGT 7, you affirm:

  • The project was created during HackGT 7 (between 8pm ET on Friday, October 16 and 9am ET on Sunday, October 18)
    • You are allowed to use a template or set up boilerplate prior to the event. However, the bulk of the work must be done during the event.
  • The project has not been submitted to any other hackathons or competitions
  • Only the people listed in the submission worked on the project
  • The project is the team's original work
    • You are allowed to use existing open source code (e.g. npm), use resources such as Stack Overflow, and consult with mentors. If you use template or open source code, please provide the link as a citation.
    • You cannot use an already existing project as your submission. Your project must add significant new functionality.

We reserve the right to monitor for cheating both manually and using automated technologies. Projects that do not meet these requirements will be excluded from judging and be ineligible for prizes.
