Local Hack Day: Share will run from Sunday, March 28th to Sunday, April 4th with a closing ceremony on Monday, April 5th.
You’ll spend the week completing technical, design, and social challenges to earn points. There are challenges for every skill level from beginner friendly to hackathon experts. We’ll have a set of Week-Long Challenges that you can complete whenever you’re ready to, but we’ll also have special Daily and Weekend Challenges that you need to complete before they’re gone.
Aside from our challenges, we’ll have “live sessions” streaming for you to watch. At these sessions, you’ll join an MLHer as they complete a challenge with you while on stream. They’ll walk you though signing up, completing the challenge, and submitting it properly. These are our favorite ways to see the community at LHD: Share, so don’t miss them!

What is LHD: share?
Local Hack Day: Share is a week-long celebration of sharing everything you’ve learned as a hacker. If you’ve been hacking with us all year, we’re excited to have you back. If this is your very first event, we’ve got a ton of beginner-friendly challenges for you to complete that’ll have you shipping your hack like a pro in no time. You’ll have your pick of technical, design, and social challenges to complete - each with an emphasis on sharing your work. The more challenges you conquer, the more points you’ll earn. Tune in each day to check out the leaderboards and share what you’ve built.
Earn points for yourself and your Guild by completing our challenges throughout Local Hack Day: Build. Points are rewarded based on your participation and completion of challenges throughout the week of Local Hack Day: Build. These range from daily challenges to week-long challenges which can be as simple as posting on your social media or as advanced as completing a workshop and building a hack.
One of the best parts of our community is that it allows people to meet and make connections with others, regardless of where you live. Form a guild of hackers and fight for a spot on the leaderboard. Who wouldn’t want bragging rights for having one of the most active guilds within the LHD: Share and the MLH community?
There’s strength in numbers, so we made marketing templates for you to gather your community. Remember, sharing is caring - so use these to share the excitement with your local community, friends, and classmates! The more members your guild has, the more points you’ll earn and the faster you’ll climb your way up the leaderboard.
At LHD: Share, we will have plenty of week-long and daily challenges to keep you busy. Week-long challenges will be accessible for the entire week, so you can hack on them whenever you have free time. Daily challenges are only available for 24 hours after they’re originally posted, so make sure you come back each day to see which challenges you’re going to conquer.
Challenges will range from social challenges urging you to connect with other members of the community, technical challenges that will expand your coding skills, and design challenges to refine your skills as a creator and artist. Some of these challenges will be completed live on our twitch stream, so you can follow along and complete it with the community. We cannot wait to see all that you learn, build, and share.
We know what you’re excited for at LHD: Share. We’ve got some awesome stickers and swag ready to go for every participant. It’s simpler than ever for you to earn your swag.
After you’ve completed our registration challenges, you’ll have earned yourself;
- An MLH Sticker
- An Ellie Season Sticker
- A Local Hack Day: Build Hexagon Sticker
- A Thank You Postcard
Check in each day to earn;
- A super secret set of bonus hexagon stickers!

Local Hack Day: Share would not be possible without the help of our amazing partners. Throughout the week you'll see challenges and more from each of them! Make sure to say hello if you see any of their team members in Discord!
