Enter Hackaday’s Goodbye 2020 Challenge

11/13/2020 | By jenntoso

We are excited to once again partner with the folks at Hackaday for another fantastic challenge. Who's ready to say goodbye to 2020? I know we are! Help us kick 2020 to the curb by entering this challenge and showing us your New Year's mood. 2020 is sooo yesterday, amirite?!

What are we looking for? Glad you asked! We want to see you get creative with this project and LIGHT IT UP! Safely using electronics, of course. We want to see a lot of blinking, moving, and shaking (singing?? you bet!), kicking off 2021 in style.

The winning entries will get (brace yourself) a shopping spree on us. That's right! You read that correctly. If you win, you choose your own prize! SWEET, right?

  • Grand Prize - $500 Digi-Key shopping spree
  • 2nd Prize - $250 Digi-Key shopping spree
  • 3rd Prize - $100 Digi-Key shopping spree

The challenge starts November 10th at 10 am PST and ends December 31st, 2020 at 12 pm PST so get those soldering irons going.

For info on how to enter, all the legal stuff that's not fun but necessary, and project examples head on over to

We can't wait to see what you come up with. Good riddance to 2020!
