RESULTS: MacroFab Design Contest: Blink an LED Sponsored by Mouser Electronics

Howdy, everyone! Today we have the contest results for the MacroFab Design Contest: Blink an LED Sponsored by Mouser Electronics. I would like to thank everyone who spent the time to design and build a project that incorporated blinking LEDs and entered the contest. I will also like to thank our four guest judges for volunteering their time and energy to help us judge the entries. The judges are (in no particular order):

Each entry to the contest was judged based on how awesome and unique the project was, the project’s completeness, and if the project conformed to the contest rules and category the project was entered into. The winners of each category will receive a cash prize of $500 USD. The MacroFab Engineering Podcast Favorite category winner will be announced on this week’s podcast episode number 138.
