[hackerspaces] Radio Shack Hackerspace Challenge: $1000 Prize!

Hello Hackerspace folks-

Last year was the first Radio Shack Hackerspace Challenge, a friendly competition between Ace Monster Toys in Oakland, CA, and Artisan’s Asylum in Somerville, MA. It’s happening again this year, and we’re looking for participants.

The challenge is sponsored by Radio Shack, and will be featured in print in Popular Mechanics magazine (and therefore seen by millions of people). It’s part of Radio Shack’s “Great Create” campaign, which includes an effort to improve their offerings to the DIY community.

This is a great opportunity to work on a cool project, compete for a $1000 prize, and get some good publicity for your hackerspace and for the hackerspace movement overall. I’d love to hear from spaces interested in forming a team and throwing their hat in the ring.

Some info about last year’s challenge, including links to the print pieces:


If you’re interested, and think you get a group together from your space, drop me a line!
