Hackster Impact Prize

Join Hackster as we rally with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals in order to make today's world a smarter, healthier place.

Prizes for a cause

These 17 Goals build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals, while including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. The goals are interconnected – often the key to success on one will involve tackling issues more commonly associated with another.

The Sustainable Development Goals


What is the Hackster Impact Prize?

The Hackster Impact Prize is a new way for Hackster contest participants to win prizes while doing good based on the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

What are the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals?

The SDGs are a universal call to action divided in 17 goals to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. Hackster's mission supports those goals.

What can I win?

Every Hackster Impact Prize winner will receive: 

  • a $250 gift card;
  • a 12 month subscription to Patchr Premium;
  • last but not least, they will be featured in a video interview with Hackster's own Alex Glow.

Extra prizes may be added to individual contests.

How can I win?

Starting today, select contests will include a new prize called Hackster Impact Prize. To win, enter projects that contribute to at least one of the SDGs. The Hackster team will then select a winner based on criteria such as solution impact, affordability, documentation quality. Please refer to each contest's rules for details.
