MicrosoftHBCU Connect, WorldData.AI, KDNuggets, SafetySmart Africa and all of us at Tech Tree Root are excited to offer $125,000 USD worth of prizes. Register with us and join our Discord to participate!

We will have TWO ROUNDS of judging and prizes. To be eligible for our FIRST ROUND of judging and prizes, follow the submission instructions posted on our Discord to properly submit your projects on WorldData.AI's Insights Hub Platform. To join our SECOND ROUND of judging and prizes, submit on Devpost. Joining or missing either round does not impact your status for the other round, and you can continue editing your projects after submitting them, so we encourage you to submit on both platforms early. Good luck!

You may join as many teams as you want and submit as many projects as you want. Each submission may list a maximum of six team members, and all teams need to submit a YouTube video (max length: two minutes) presenting their project. Check our FAQs page and this Google Doc for more information.
