Pitch Competition

    • A project will be deemed "plagiarised" if a key or major part of the project is found to be stolen from tutorials, Internet resources, or any other published work.
  3. You may use any publicly available libraries/packages.
  4. The project must be functional, even if it isn’t perfect (i.e., not just a design).

  6. You will present on either August 5th or August 8th.
  7. Presentations must be no longer than 5 minutes.


The showcase will allow you to share your amazing projects with everyone, as well as check out some of the other cool projects submitted by your fellow participants. The showcase will take place 2:00 to 4:00 PM EDT on August 14th. 

  1. You are free to make improvements from the Pitch Competition to be eligible for the Most Improved Prize, but you may also choose to present what you had as of the Pitch Competition at the showcase.
