Welcome to the 2019 China-US Young Maker Competition!
Hackster is hosting the 2019 US based semi-final China-US Young Maker Competition!
Do you have an idea that would make a more sustainable, efficient and interconnected tomorrow? We are calling upon innovative US and China makers to submit project ideas focusing on community development, education, environmental protection, health & fitness, energy, transportation or other areas of sustainable development.
The top ten projects selected will be invited to fly to Beijing, China as semi-finalists for the final competition, organized by the China Ministry of Education, held July 22-26th, 2019. The all-expenses-paid trip is applicable to the individual contributor or up to five members of a team. Final prizes are no joke either. You can win up to $15,000 for first place, $7,500 for second, or $5,000 for third… along with international bragging rights! Just read a few of these testimonials from last years' winners:
"It was a great event that all the Makers in US should participate in, you get to see not only what US makers are focusing on but also what Chinese makers are making as well!" - Peter Ma （Beijing finalist 2nd place）
"The US-China Young Maker Competition was an incredible chance to present my project to an international audience and interact with the best and brightest people in China. I met US/Chinese diplomats, students from Chinese universities, and makers from all across the United States!" - Alex Wulff（Beijing Finalist）
"The competition was really great! We had a blast at the Great Wall and the food was amazing." - Devin Mui （Beijing finalist）
