We organized the largest youth-led economics hackathon named EconHacks last year, with over 350+ highschool students & undergraduates from 23+ countries competing for a 230k USD prize pool.
We need more youths taking initiatives to spread the combination of CS and Economics together. That is why EconHacks is transfering to a chapter system based hackathon where we accept chapter applications from almost everywhere in the world.
