    Project14 is a monthly project competition from element14. There are no applications to fill out so competition is open to all community members who want to participate! You won't be given any required kits to use so you must choose what components work best for your project and demonstrate your project using video proof.




    Project14 competitions have always been more about having fun and learning than winning prizes.  Part of that fun is earning badges and shopping cart to use in components to build your next project.


    By Members for Members


    Badges are intended as a way to encourage members to take the first steps to starting a project, finishing that project, and collect trophies for winning competitions. You can also win a badge for volunteering to judge a project competition, gifting your prize to another member, and for inspiring others to compete in a Project14 project competition.
