Greetings Hackers, 

If you're still debating whether to apply to the Hack HeroX Challenge, today is your last chance!

Pro Tip: HeroX recommends that you submit ideas at least three hours before the deadline. Last-minute technical problems and unforeseen roadblocks have been the cause of many un-submitted entries. Don’t let that happen to you!


Phase I is only a request to participate, so it shouldn't take too long to complete -  

As a reminder, see the Challenge Structure below.
