    Finally thank you to everyone who participated.  We will be sending out up to 20 Arduino Nano boards for your NanoRama projects as a way of showing our thanks and appreciation! 


    We will also be sending out custom branded Fighting Germs hand sanitizers (when they become available) throughout the community to encourage EVERYONE to participate in the FIRST of its kind design challenge to fight back against the COVID-19 pandemic: Fighting Germs!


    The NanoRama competition celebrated the 3rd birthday of Project14 by celebrating the 15th birthday of Arduino.  In a few short days Arduino will be visiting the community for the first time since our  Smarter World MKR WAN challenge for  LoRa Meets Arduino, a Journey in the LPWAN World where you'll get a chance to win a pair of the new MKR WAN 1310 boards for asking good questions and impressing them with our community.  If you haven't signed up yet, please do and support more Arduino activity in the community!  Speaking of impressive, the projects that you did were great and covered a lot of range.  The grand prize went to genebren for his DMX diagnostic who decided to finally get around to doing a project using an Arduino after he took the Arduino Fundamentals: Part I: Quiz which we used to kick off the celebration.  We also had a  Arduino Nano Giveaway where we gave away the new line of Arduino Nano boards even before they became available at any of our stores and asked you  Which Board Are You Going to Use for Your Arduino Day Project?  The poll helped give us an idea of what we wanted to do to celebrate the combined birthdays of Arduino and Project14.  With Arduino Day happening on March 21st we bumped up our annual April birthday celebration to late March.  As we prepared to send out the Nano giveaway winners their Arduino Nano boards, the lockdown occurred even before we had a chance to launch NanoRama.  What began life as an idea that came from Projects That Fight Germs by 14rhb and an option to be voted on in the March poll was launched Fighting Germs a few days after we went on lockdown.  At the same time we encouraged NanoRama participants to a Fighting Germs project with their Nano board.


    Some great COVID-19 projects during this competition included The 20 Second Handwash by  vimarsh_Nanorama Project14: Integrated Diagnostics Health Kit by ashutosh_pandeyCandle in the wind by redcharly,  and  The specified item was not found. by sjmill01 .


    The projects that were submitted during the NanoRama competition showed incredible diversity.  Both the grand prize and the first place winners are testament to that with a project that involved test equipment, a project that involved machine learning,  a photonics project that used Micro-LIDAR, and of course a project that involved Fighting Germs.    Runners up included more test equipment, more lasers, robotics projects, IoT projects, and more fighting germs projects.


    A special thanks to the following  element14 presents hosts for going through each of these projects and helping us pick out winners: mayermakes , davedarko , and  kalebclark .  They were joined by our community judges  gecoz and DAB


    Without further Ado here are your winners.......

    2 points were awarded for every grand prize pick, 1 point awarded for each of the three first place picks.  Finally, we used engagement metrics such as likes, comments, bookmarks, and helpful answers to reach a final consensus on each of the picks.  The project with the most points was awarded 2 points, with the three runners up given 1 point each.


    Scoring from judges and engagement were given equal weight so engagement was used to break any ties between members because voting was spread between a lot of great projects!
