Hopscotch/Hopscotch Forum Contest: Big Coding Championship!

Inhale


BIG CODING CHAMPIONSHIP

This is a really big coding competition hosted by me myself, @Cocoa_Viola. You will submit projects in this topic specifically for this contest.


Format and Structure

This contest will have a structure similar to that of a bracket.

There will be eight teams, each with 4-6 users. For every round, all teams will be provided with the same coding prompt. The teams will also have assigned competitors. This way, one team will be able to compete against another team. The winning team will advance to the next round and compete with another team, but the losing team will not. This will continue until the final round is reached. If your team lost one round but members of your team still want to participate, then you are welcome to do so, even though this will not count towards your chances of winning a certain place or prize.


Judging System

There will be a certain amount of judges, as decided by the host when judgement recruitment ends. These judges will have to make judgements on every single project entered by all members of a team. The scores the members made on their projects will count towards the team’s score. At the end of a round, the team with the higher score will win that round.

If there is a tie, then the two members that made the highest scores for their teams will need to be challenged to another coding round (not available to other team members). The same prompt as before will apply, but there will be a twist. This will be used as a tie breaker. If it doesn’t work as a tie breaker, though, then it will be up to the host to decide which one wins the round.

Judgement will be based on the following:

• Creativity
• Smoothness
• Originality
• Design

The host will judge as well.


Rules

The ground rules for the contest are:

  1. Be nice to other users
  2. Any type of code is allowed (unless it is used to break the community guidelines on here and/or the app)
  3. No inappropriate content is allowed
  4. Do not steal somebody else’s idea
  5. No sabotaging the contest
  6. Always code according to the prompt
  7. All projects must contain a notice that it is a contest entry specifically for this contest
  8. Hopscotch is the ONLY coding platform that you are allowed to use. The use of other coding platforms will not be tolerated.

If you violate these rules, then you will be booted from the contest and your submissions will not count.


Deadlines

Deadlines are decided by the host. For the regular rounds, then you will get a random time span from two and a half weeks to a month. For the tie breaker rounds, you will get from one week to two weeks.


Prizes

Prizes will be handed out by certain users who agree to do so.

(An official list of prizes for this contest will be added later)

Thanks.

This will probably be an immense success, and at that, probably the biggest non-official contest ever to be on this forum.
