This is an official Hopscotch event. All prizes below are handled by the Hopscotch Team and the forum leaders & curators.
The time is nigh, the sun is high, and Hopscotchers from the best communities all around the world are gathering to compete in the 2021 Summer Hopolympics!
This Hopolympics will be centered around recreating a summer Olympics event in Hopscotch. See this announcement in the app for more information to guide your coding!
On the forum side, we have both a bonus themed coding competition and some challenges - where you’ll have opportunities to win some hopbytes!
