One year after its release, the Raspberry Pi is proving to be an extremely versatile, capable platform for prototyping and building out projects. From cat feeders to garage door openers to media centers, the Pi is providing solutions all around the home. It’s also popular as an educational and retro-gaming platform.

RPiDC_MCM-buttonNow’s your chance to turn the $35 you spent on your Pi model B (or the $25 invested in your model A) into a prize pack worth over $1,000. Our first ever Raspberry Pi Design Contest will award five makers with a prize pack, courtesy MCM Electronics, that includes a USB digital multimeter, a DC power supply, a digital soldering iron, a Gertboard expansion board, a Pi Face, a Pi View HDMI to VGA adapter, a Wi-Pi wireless adapter, and a Raspberry Pi iron-on skill badge. One of the five winners will also receive a Printrbot Jr. 3D printer for their best-in-show project.

Challenge yourself to build something remarkable with this single-board computer. Enter now to participate in this incredible opportunity. Any maker could win, and that might be you!

This contest is now over, but see the winners here!

    “Please Note: Because of the the nature of this contest, participants are limited to residents of the United States.”
    This makes no sense guys. Seriously. What happened to the maker movement being a world wide effort? What, in the “nature of this contest” stops you from allowing people from outside the US to join in. The Raspberry Pi is aimed at enabling the education and betterment of everyone, anywhere.
