The Internet of Things has given us a chance to explore the world around us like never before. From smart scooters on city streets to connected devices that track weather patterns in the heart of Central America, we’re learning more and more all over the world through the power of IoT. Now, with our 3rd generation of IoT hardware, powered by Particle Mesh, being used far and wide, we have a chance to learn and discover even more.

That’s why we’re thrilled to launch our latest contest on Hackster: Exploring & Understanding Our Connected World.

Here’s all you need to know

  • Scoot over to our contest page on Hackster to register and pitch your project no later than June 3, 2019 to enter for a chance to win free hardware to kick your work into gear. We’ll be awarding an Argon Kit to the first 50 people to register high quality projects — so don’t wait to submit!
  • Make sure your project aligns with the contest rules and uses at least one device from our 3rd Generation of IoT hardware.
  • Now it’s time to get building! Make some magic, document all of your work and get your project submitted by the completion deadline: July 21, 2019.
  • Our judges will look over the submissions and choose winners no later than July 26, 2019.

Gimme the Loot

We’ll be awarding prizes for the best projects that address issues in three distinct categories: cities, the environment, and device fleets. While you can submit your project to more than one category, you’re only able to win one prize from this contest.

Speaking of winning, we’re handing out seven fantastic prizes! Drones, campaign gear, electric scooters and more.

So what are you waiting for? Get started on your project today.

@Joe oops, here says July 21st but on Hackster it says 22nd :wink:


#6

That’s right, if you want an Argon Kit submit your project by the end of May.

The deadline to submit your actual project isn’t until July.

We had to move some dates around at the last minute to align with Hackster’s email newsletter.

I see, and hardware application deadline here says June 3rd but in hackster says June 1st

Thanks! The deadline is at midnight on the 21st - so by the 22nd it’s too late.

I edited the blog to make that more clear. Appreciate the tip.
