Why should I be there?

For the guts and the glory (obviously!). Contestants also compete for over $800 in prizes, and will be provided with food, snacks, and door prizes to keep them going and fuel the creativity!

What does it cost?

This event is FREE for attendees! There is a $10 registration fee, but if you show up and participate the registration fee will be refunded.

How will it work?

The event will take place in nine (9) rounds of time-limited challenges. There will be problems of varying difficulty in each round, increasing from easy to hard as the contest goes on. Participants will compete in teams of four (4), so sign up with some friends and see if your group can be the best! Don't have a full team? No problem! Teams will be formed and adjusted the day of the competition as well. Teams will be ranked on a live scoreboard throughout the whole competition, and the team with the highest score at the end will be the victors!
