AbilityHacks is proudly organized by AblifyNow, a student-led organization dedicating to promoting disability equity. 

AbilityHacks encourages young participants (10+) to create innovations supporting those with disabilities, whether that's an app, website, software, or even a physical product. AbilityHacks will hold workshops and speaker sessions, while also giving away $40000+ in prizes! We look forward to supporting the disability community!
