We were thrilled to be informed that MAKE won FOLIO magazine’s FAME (FOLIO: Awards for Magazine Events) award for Maker Faire, in their “Best Series of Events” category. Congrats to everybody who’s responsible for making Maker Faire the spectacular, award-wining event that it is.

If you want to be a part of this year’s fun and games, check out the Maker Faire website. This year’s focus is Re-Make America, inspired by President Obama’s call for all of us to participate in rebuilding America. We’re looking to showcase “the risk-takers, the doers, the makers of things.” If you have something you want to present at the Faire, take a look at our Call for Makers page.
