On September 21st 2020, Pitt Computer Science Club (CSC) launched the first iteration of CSC Hacks, a six-week competition that enables students of all majors and skill levels to hone their software engineering skills by designing and developing a personal project of their choice.

At the end of the competition, students submitted a 2-minute video of their project with the possibility of winning up to $1k in prizes. There were a total of 140 CSC members who signed up and more than 80 teams competed with 15 total submissions!
