The 2012 Road to Maker Faire Challenge was such a success we’re hitting the road again! Last year’s challengers included everything from homemade 3D printers to upcycled fashion accessories, from mobile art carts to automatons and interactive sculptures. This year one grand prize winner will receive $2,500 to bring their project to Maker Faire Bay Area May 18-19 in San Mateo, CA. And two runners-up will each receive a Maker’s Notebook, a one-year subscription to MAKE Magazine, and two adult single-day tickets to Maker Faire Bay Area 2013.
The contest will accept entries until April 8 at 11:59PM PDT. Only persons residing in the United States who are at least 18 years of age can enter. If you’ve already applied to Maker Faire, you can also enter to win The Road to Maker Faire Challenge. Or if you’re looking for that incentive to travel to the Bay Area for the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth, now is your chance. You have nothing to lose!
