Zillow HBCU Housing Hackathon

Zillow, in collaboration with United Negro College Fund and Black Tech Ventures, will host the HBCU Housing Hackathon to provide HBCU students with valuable real-world experience and career development through workshops, hands-on enrichment, mentorship and teamwork. 

The hackathon is open to students who have advanced coding experience as well as those with little or none. Teams can have as many as four members, and although registration is open to HBCU students in any degree program, each team must have at least one member enrolled in a computer science, computer engineering or related program. 

Participants will be required to develop and pitch a creative and impactful tech solution that aligns with Zillow’s mission to help consumers overcome obstacles in their journey to find a home. The first-place team will receive a $20,000 cash award, split among its members, and Zillow will donate $25,000 to its school’s computer science program. Second- and third-place teams will receive $12,000 and $6,000 cash awards, respectively. Students from the top three teams also will receive new laptops, textbook gift cards and AfroTech World 2021 conference tickets. All eligible hackathon participants interested in a role at Zillow will have an opportunity to interview for an internship.

Registration for the event is open now until 9/16, and can be found along with more information at https://events.zillowgroup.com/zillow-hbcu-hackathon-2021
