Time to get creative – the Arduino Day Community Challenge is coming

Arduino TeamMarch 5th, 2021

Every year, one of Arduino Day’s biggest highlights is the Community Challenge, and 2021 is no different.

As you read this, we’re working feverishly behind the scenes to get this year’s challenge ready, so you can start submitting your projects for a chance to win some awesome Arduino goodies.

Keep an eye out right here on the Arduino blog early next week for all the details, and how to enter your projects into the competition. But in the meantime, why not spend the weekend deciding what kind of cool, creative and crazy contraptions you might want to build?

As you’ve probably already seen, Arduino Day 2021 is themed around the idea of “undistancing;” investigating all the amazing ways the open-source community can connect, collaborate and create as one, even when we’re physically separated.

So that might give you some inspiration for your Community Challenge projects, but most importantly try to think of something that’s uniquely creative, and offers a solution that makes a real social impact.

Your projects don’t have to be big, flashy or complex. Something small, handmade, creative and fun is just as likely to win, so plug your imagination directly into the Arduino IDE, and casually blow our minds!

Stop back next week for more info on how to submit, and until then have a great weekend of Arduino building bliss.
