Our very own OWASP ESAPI Project Leaders, Chris Schmidt and Kevin Wall, are hosting the OWASP ESAPI Hackathon starting on Friday, December 20th 2013 and ending on Monday, January 20th 2014. The aim of the ESAPI Hackathon is to encourage contributors to Implement modular security controls, fix existing bugs, provide reference implementations, and improve user documentation. 

Each participant will be evaluated by four judges, and prizes will be awarded to those who provide the most valuable contribution to the project. Here are the list of prizes:

First place: Apple iPad Mini and an ESAPI T-shirt

Second place: $30.00 (USD) Amazon Gift Card and an ESAPI T-shirt

Third place: $20.00 (USD) Amazon Gift Card and an ESAPI T-shirt

Fourth place: An ESAPI T-shirt

We encourage all those who can participate to contribute to the OWASP ESAPI Project. Please view the contributing guidelines wiki page for more detailed information on participant expectations. If you still require more assistance, please contact either, Kevin Wall (kevin.w.wall@gmail.com) or Chris Schmidt (chris.schmidt@owasp.org).
