Scratch Competitions

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.

Over the past few months students have been working hard to prepare their projects for regional competitions. Nova Scotia, PEI & New Brunswick competitions are still open, but will be closing the end of May. Click here for information or to submit your project.

Newfoundland & Labrador competition is now closed and the winners have been announced.
