~# Hak4Kidz Overview

Hak4Kidz is the first official youth based ethical hacking conference in Chicago that is *not* a hackathon.

Cipher disc badges There has been a tremendous amount of support from the community at events such as NolaCon, THOTCON, BrrCON, BSides Las Vegas, Def Con, and GrrCON in the form of purchasing the cipher disc badges. Several inquiries came in regarding to purchase the badges in lieu of conference attendance. We are listening. The badges and t-shirts are now available online at Amazon.



~# Hak4Kidz Def Con Scholarship

Due to the increasing demand to provide events in additional cities, we have decided to put the scholarship on hold until further notice. We hope to bring it back for DEF CON 26.

~# Critical Data

That concludes the Hak4Kidz events for 2017. We hope the Tyros had fun while learning valuable technical and STEM skillz. Please continue to visit our website for news of upcoming events and ways you can help support our mission. Thanks again for being an awesome community!
