    Monthly Theme Poll


    Take a look at past themes and the projects other members have made and use it as inspiration for your next project.  Every winner of a Project14 competition was voted on by members of the element14 community.  Monthly themes are voted on by members every month.  Themes that are voted on are chosen based on topics members want to do projects around.


    Prizes are given to winners to make things fun but the goal of the program is to create an inclusive environment where everyone can learn from one another.  Members have an opportunity and can interpret themes broadly in a friendly and relaxed environment. Find out why Project14 is a project competition about you!
