Alexa can help ease the lives of busy students, allowing them to focus on their studies. Whether it’s struggling with various classes, time management, or tutoring, Alexa can be a concierge, a study buddy, or a learning coach. But what else can she do for higher ed. students? For this hackathon, you'll build Alexa skills that fit into one of the following categories: Student life, Learning, or Community.

There are $30,590 in prizes including DeepLens video cameras, Echo devices, AWS credits, and Amazon gift cards.

FYI, This hackathon is open to residents of the US who are 18+ years old AND members of the AWS Educate program. If you’re not already a member, sign up for AWS Educate. It’s free!
