The Holiday Special is now Live!



Visit contest details to learn more.


Think about what makes the holidays special to you and do a project around it. 

It will forever shake the foundation of the Star Wars Universe.


Use the Force to build something that could only come from you and what makes the holidays unique to you!


If you want to relive the glory days of 1978, or what you imagined life was like living in the late 70s go for it.  You could make your own obscure late 70s movie prop, something that looks like it could be in the original trilogy or a knock off, complete with lasers, sound effects, and that kitchy 70s vibe that helped make Star Wars so cool!


For the sake of inclusiveness, you could also make any fun project in the holiday spirit, there are no restrictions.


It could be a snow globe that warns of inclement weather conditions, voice-activated ornaments, jazzed up holiday cards, LED decorations - anything that means the holidays to you.


If you don't have a tradition you celebrate, don't want to celebrate the one you grew up in, do a project that is authentic to how the holidays really make you feel.



It can even be a Star Wars project, if you only believe in the Force.
