      Greetings Best Community Members in the Galaxy!


      It's hard to believe its been 2 years.  This past April, we celebrated the 2nd birthday of Project14 with double the shopping cart and robot prizes for robot projects.  Now it's time for you to decide which robot projects get robot prizes! 


      This year's birthday special was Month of Robots.   One Grand Prize winner will receive an Arduino Engineering Kit,  a Marty the Robot Stem Kit, and a $200 Shopping cart!  3 first place winners will receive an app-enabled R2D2 droid and a $200 shopping cart.  In order to get the ball rolling we're asking for volunteer judges .  Every month we ask you to pick the winners because we want competitions to reflect the diversity of thought and opinion that makes this the best online community for engineers in the galaxy!


      Those of you that have volunteered to judge in the past, you know the drill.   Comment below to let me know or message me directly at tariq.ahmad.


      You're under no obligation to vote for the best project but we do ask that you look for complete projects and let us know your thoughts on the winners you pick.

      The guidelines are loosely structured but are designed to encourage complete project submissions (with steps and video proof), and we want this program to be something that everyone in the community can participate to post smaller projects that fit within a theme (a theme the members pick in a monthly poll) .


      For each project submission did the entrant do the following:

      • Follow the Steps - Did they provide the steps it took to complete the project (text, video, or images) and/or schematics;
      • Submit Video Proof - Did they post a video proof of their project;
      • Stick to the Theme - How well did the project stick to the theme of the competition;
      • Demonstrate Originality - Did they come up with a clever name for their project or did they introduce something new or that is not commercially available?


      Get a Decider badge for volunteering to judge a Project14 competition!  To earn a Decider badge, simply volunteer to judge a Project14 Competition, pick the winners and give us the reason for your choices.  The Decider badge will be your reward for making your decision!


      Diversity and inclusiveness are the strengths of this program.  You can receive a Decider badge by volunteering to judge this or any future Project14 Competition!
