To compete you must be age 18 or older and a registered student of any highschool, college, or university. HPCC1 will be part of the KnightHacks hackathon. HPCC1 is comprised of two runs: one on Saturday Oct. 7th and one on Sunday Oct. 8th. Both runs will be oriented towards beginners and more skilled competitors alike.

Registration is closed. Thanks for registering!

Become An Organizer

Any UCF student (or incoming UCF student) willing to learn can help organize Horse Plinko. We are seeking students interested in IaC (Infrastructure as Code) tools like Terraform and Ansible, offensive security, OpenStack, network engineering, and more - no matter what you’re interested in, we can probably use your help. To get involved, join the Hack@UCF Discord server and give yourself the Projects role under #roles.

Note that while being an organizer does not prevent you from competing in HPCC, it will make you ineligible for placement/prizes that year.

Sponsors are what keep us running! Every donation is greatly appreciated and recognized as a contribution to our continued success. HPCC has different tiers of sponsorship packages, including a logo on the competition shirts, tabling and speaking opportunities, and even a peg on our real-life plinko board that competition winners get to sign. Properly designated donations made through the Collegiate Cyber Defense Club Incorporated, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, may be tax deductible.
