Organization For Third Annual Summer Contest


Hi. This is for organized thoughts, maybe polls, stuff relating to the main organization topic.

Hello everyone!
This is the Official Third Hopscotch 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, but you won’t win anything.

Welcome to the Third Annual Hopscotch Summer Contest!

Rules/General Info:
-Project cannot be more than one week old from the starting week

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

Judges will judge all the projects starting after August 5th. If you aren’t active on the forum we might kick you out of the judging group. We will need a maximum of 15-20 judges, because we are getting a lot more projects this year.



Hosts help organize the contest, and also anyone who needs help with turning in their project, or if someone has a question about the rules. We need a maximum of 7-10 judges this year. If you aren’t active, you might get kicked out of the hosting group.




Above post is really good!!


One question: am I allowed to start coding now and just make sure it isn’t finished until June 27th?


Yeah, if you keep updating it


Woohoooooooo!!! Finally almost Summer and were already getting ready for challenges


That draft is great! I think that you don’t need to change anything unless there is any changes or news regarding the voting system or the organization.


Well we changed a few things this year.


Ok I will be updating the announcement, with all the feedback from Liza


I’m sorry, but here’s the most revised, up-to-date version.


No that one doesn’t get updated anymore. Only the one in this topic. I took that one off global edit


I’ll make the edits, then, don’t worry.
Is it okay to?


Ummmm no. I would prefer you not. Unless if you tell me what you are going to do first


I gave edit reasons on the other one, but you can’t see them anymore.
There’s a difference between the one I replied with and the one I replied to.


Ok well the one being used in this topic is the up to date one


That one has 8 edits, the one on the topic, four.


No the one in this topic…post number two


Yep :+1: I understand


The other one isn’t even on global edit anymore


I’m just saying to replace it with a better rough draft. Rough drafts can be revised and better.
