April 22, 2018 marks the 48th annual Earth Day, a day for civic participation and demonstration of support for environment protection. We are excited to announce that Seeed and Hackster have teamed up to lead this 'Seeed for Earth 2018' Contest, calling for environmental-themed projects to inspire our community to invent things that will benefit our beautiful planet!
We're giving away 15 awesome Seeed & Hackster-powered prizes for the top submissions:
- Top prize: One round-trip flight ticket (economy class) from your city to Shenzhen during Maker Faire Shenzhen and Seeed Conference in November 2018, and lodging accommodation for 4 nights.
- 2nd to 5th prizes: one Amazon Alexa Echo each (provided by Hackster).
- 10 Projects of Merit: One Seeed Environmental Kit to each of the additional 10 top projects (one kit each, customs taxes not included. See list for product details).
So if there is something in the environment that you are passionate about - climate, energy, water, soil, air, or even food, this is your chance to make a project about it! It can also be a previous project related to environmental issues. You can work on your own or with a team to develop your project.
Get involved and make an impact! Why? Because we only have one rock in space – and remember: “The power is yours!” – Captain Planet
