Hello everyone!
This is the Official Third Annual Summer Contest! Anyone can enter, and you don’t need to notify us in advance. Just post your project into the Summer Contest category on HS. You can enter a coded project, or an art project, or both! Both are judged separately and have separate prizes. You can also become a judge or host if you want, and you can still win prizes, you just can’t vote for yourself!


Welcome to the Third Annual Hopscotch Summer Contest!

Theme: Summer and/or winter. Points will be deducted if the project doesn’t relate to the theme.


Rules/General Info:
-Project cannot be more than one month old, and if it is it has to be majorly updated to be turned in
-Submitting is a lot easier this year! Just put the project in the Summer Contest channel! Any updates to your project, just repost them in there!
-The contest starts June 27th and ends August 5th
-One submission per person, per category
-If you have a problem with your submission time, contact a host


Judging Coded Projects Criteria:
The judges can assign up to:

20 points for graphics and design.
20 points for problem solving and creativity in the code. (Did you find a new way to code a concept?)
20 points for organized, clutter-free code. (Is the code efficient?)
20 points for connection to the theme. (Creative connections are encouraged)
10 points for the thumbnail and attractiveness of the project before you start. (Does the thumbnail accurately sum up the project?)

30 points for the look and design.
20 points for use of seasonal colors.

Dates:
June 27th to August 5th 2018.


How to enter:

Once you are done with the project, post it in the SummerContest category. All the links will be turned into us when we begin judging. If you want to post an update, just publish it again in the same category!


Other notes:

  • You may work in a collab of up to 3 people
  • You may enter a project that you’ve made recently.
  • You may continue to update your project and resubmit a link until the end date.
  • You may enter only one project per category, meaning that you can enter one coded project, and one art project
  • Collab prizes have to be decided on and split up after you submit your project
  • No art collabs of any kind
  • You can’t work in a collab and solo and submit in the same category

Amazing and well written. Just asking, what if your aready almost done :grimacing:.

So far I think it’s well but I’m just wondering. Thanks

Do you still have your iPad over summer?


#4

Sadly no and will not get it back, although I could try to get my brothers ipad but they probs would kill me! :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

I think you might enjoy it though.

(P.S I’m moving that’s why I would ge it back)


#5

Could you turn it in on June 27th?


#6

I could try with my brothers ipad or my moms. I just wonder if it will save. What if I upload when my school is done then unpublished on whatever and yeah.
