I was in a hackathon last year, it was a great experience, first and only one I have attended. It was marketed towards building an app , mobile or web app, that helped the institution that made the event. There was a money prize for the winners, but in order to cash it they would have to actually finish the app and provide the code the institution. It was a well paid project, at least the group of students that I went with. It was quite stressful working against the clock, it was a two day event too, so there were occasional breaks. Food and drinks were given out at almost all times. And there were a couple of non programming related activities during the breaks that awarded the winners with prizes, such as an I - pad , they were a massive rock paper scissors contest and a general knowledge trivia about comics, cartoons and some IT facts, such as HTML stands for... I'll leave the link on what the results were. http://www.auditoriachihuahua.gob.mx/portal/?s=hack By the way, this was organized by a government entity so I am pretty sure they had a lot of money to spare :/ I don't know what kind of organization are you running this for. Best of luck

Thanks for your answer

Hey man there are countless topics and theme.

Including

Environment, Pollution, City life, IoT,

I would recommend partnering up with a tech company that can offer tech for free. For example we partner up with Microsoft a lot and they offer free membership to Azul.
