Free $100 AWS Credit for Hackathon Participants!

The Back-to-School Hackathon is happening this Saturday, and here’s another incentive to join: $100 AWS credits, courtesy of Amazon Web Services! This prize will given out (after the contest) to every participant who gets on any challenge leaderboard in the hackathon.  To get on a leaderboard, you don’t need to beat other hackers, you just need to code a solution that gets more than 0 points. So even if you don’t win these huge prizes, you’ll still win just for participating! Many Amazon Web Services are super cheap, so $100 is enough to get your site up and running on the cloud.

Note that the Hackathon and prizes are for US university students. Everyone else can participate in the CodeSprint4 Contest, which will be at the same time.
