HackIllinois mentorship invitation

If there are committers who are interested in mentoring students in this hackathon, please comment below.

HackIllinois is a 36-hour collegiate Open Source hackathon that takes place annually at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. This year, it will be from February 28th-March 1st, 2020. Our mission is to introduce college students to Open Source, while giving back to the community. We strive to create a collaborative environment in which our attendees can learn from and work with developers to make their own contributions. In past years, we’ve had developers from prominent projects such as npm, Rust, and Apache come to mentor students from our pool of 900+ attendees.

We’d love it if you could pass along this message to the Open Data Kit community or any individuals you believe would be interested. We will provide meals throughout the event and can reimburse for travel and lodging up to a certain amount depending on where in the US people are coming from. More information on mentorship can be found at hackillinois.org/mentor. You can also visit opensource.hackillinois.org to see what kinds of projects were represented at our event last year.
