Announcing the Road to Maker Faire Challenge

Announcing the Road to Maker Faire Challenge

Maker Faire is already the Greatest “Show & Tell” on Earth! And for one lucky maker, it’s about to get even greater. We’re thrilled to announce the Road to Maker Faire Challenge, presented by Esurance, which will send one maker and a friend to Bay Area Maker Faire 2012 in May. A stipend of $2,000 will be awarded, which can be used for travel and accommodation. Or, if you’d like, you can use the money to fund the fabrication of your project. You read that right, $2,000 to MAKE your project!

So if you were looking for that push to complete an awesome project the world must see, or you could use the money to fund your trip to the Faire, we hope you’ll apply. Of course, as this is a “challenge,” our judges will be specifically looking for projects that challenge you, the maker, to new heights. Think big!

Additional rules and guidelines can be found here. This challenge is only open to US residents over the age of 18. Deadline is April 5th, so you have one month accept the Road to Maker Faire Challenge. I look forward to seeing your project at Maker Faire!
