The 2019 SCRATCH competition is now CLOSED. 

See the winners below.

ABOUT THE COMPETITION

For the past five years Brilliant Labs and our community partners have been celebrating the creativity and innovative imagination of youth throughout our region through the annual Scratch Competition.

 

Scratch is a block-based visual programming language and online community. It was developed by the MIT Media Lab, has been translated into 70+ languages, and introduces youth to coding.   

 

We had a blast last year:  2018 competition 

 

We highly encourage you to take a look at finalists from previous years before submitting your Scratch Project.  Students will have an opportunity to win prizes including prizes for Best Overall, Best Technical, and Best Artistic Design.
