Competition


 2024 Makers Challenge


Competition: Interested in winning a Raspberry pi 5  8GB PRIZE PACK, roll-up your sleeves and get making!!!!

Have a look at what others have done with Raspberry Pi’s, check out YouTube videos and speak with your peers to see what you might come up with. You are absolutely allowed to leverage ideas from other existing projects you might stumble across over the internet. However, your creation needs to have an "original" extension to it. This original extension could be in the form of new features, custom code you've had to write, additional capabilities you've implemented, etc. Please do not blatantly copy, paste content/code from Github and consider your project worthy of being entered into the competition. Your entry will be rejected if you we find out that it’s a copy of an existing project with ZERO changes or modifications to it. When referencing other projects, building upon others work/ideas/creation we would like you to reference those projects/creators in your submission. That shows your honesty and it also tells us clearly what parts of the project were from the original design and what you’ve done to extend the existing capabilities.
