Greetings Best Community Members in the Galaxy!
Last year, The Holiday Special was the first special event we held and we did it along side our Cool LED Display competition. This year we continued the tradition with Merry Boxes & LEDs , alongside our Wearable Tech competition, and we also launched A Question of Scale. It's been a helluva year, as you can read about in the end of year review, Project14 | The 2018 Year in Review: Building Something Out of Nothing!
This year's Holiday Special is just like last year's, except with bigger prizes, including an Oscilloscope Grand Prize. It's also a continuation of the Gift to Gives tradition with a Grand Prize Gift to Give of a Home Lab Tool Kit. There will also be 3 First Place Winners who will receive a $100 Shopping cart along with a Maker Tool Kit. Each of the 3 First Place Winners will receive a $100 Shopping Cart as well as a Maker Tool Kit Bundle. On Valentine's Day, February 14th, we'll carry on the tradition of announcing the Gift to Gives that the winners of this competition pick. Also, we'll be awarding Heart Trophy Badges to all the Gifters and Giftees involved with this year's Gift a Gives. If you were a Holiday Special winner last year, you'll also receive a Heart Trophy. Also, we'll introduce a Holiday Cup Trophy Badge (inspired by the Stanley Cup from NHL Hockey) to the Grand Prize Winner of Merry Boxes & LEDs.
If you won a Grand Prize in any of our past competitions you'll also receive a (contest name) Cup Badge as well! You can view a full list of (contest name) Cup winners in Project14 | Project Competition: Events, Trophies, Timetable, Projected and Historical Timelines!
In order to get the ball rolling we're asking for volunteer judges for Merry Boxes & LEDs. 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!
Let us know your pick for the Grand Prize and the 3 first place Winners!
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!
