TeenHacks LI is Long Island’s premier high school 24-hour hackathon, by students, for students. Founded by Jeffrey Yu and Wesley Pergament, we are all about bringing together the brightest students across the tri-state area to engage in “collaborative coding.” We hope to build a hacker community here on Long Island, with an emphasis placed on innovation and entrepreneurship.
