Organizing a guild is a fantastic way to get the word out about your hackathon, form a stronger community at your school, meet people with similar interests as you, or practice your leadership skills in a low-stakes environment. Completing a journey is always more fun with friends, so share your guild with anyone you want to go on an adventure with - classmates, friends, family, and more! The more members your guild has, the more experience you'll earn.Form a Guild
