    We want to congratulate our three winners of the Sensing the World Connections Raffle, listed above! Each of them will be able to build a shopping cart of whatever parts they need, worth $200 USD in their currency.


    And we also want to thank everyone who participated in the raffle, helping us to expand the reach of this Design Challenge and the Azure Sphere platform!



    The Contest


    To encourage members to get their Azure Sphere kits connected, we're hosting our Sensing the World Connections Raffle!


    To enter, sync your kit daily to our contest server using the method described here during the two week period from September 11th to September 27th, 2019. The more times you connect your kit, the more raffle entries you get! You will be able to connect a maximum of once per day that will count towards this contest; further connections within the same day will not be counted beyond the first. This contest is separate from Phase 1 of our main Sensing the World challenge, so you can be a winner of both this contest and of Phase 1 in Sensing the World. Your connections during the raffle period will also count towards your total connections, if you haven't already met your Phase 1 requirement. If you have met your Phase 1 requirement already, you will still need to make additional connections to become part of this contest.

    We will pick three winners: one from the Americas, one from Europe, and one from Asia / Pacific. The winners will each earn a shopping cart of parts from our e-commerce stores equivalent to $200 USD in their own currency. They can use that shopping cart to order any parts they want, restricted only by what is offered in their respective countries, to be sure we are in accordance with trade restrictions.
