We run both online and in-person hackathons. The material doesn’t change, the challenges are the same. We can adjust the hours for the online hackathon to make sure that everyone is actively engaged.
We run hackathons in Canada, US and Mexico. Recent locations:

Every participant gets a verifiable certificate at the end of the hackathon.
One follow-up for every day of hackathon is included. It will help you with setting up best practices in the team and refreshing your knowledge. We will also answer any of your questions.
