Welcome to the 2021 Virtual Maker Contest

Though this last year has changed how a lot of things look, it hasn't changed our collective need to create. The Castlewood Makerspace team wants to foster our creative community by providing a place to share and enjoy the work of talented makers across the district. We are kicking off this new interactive maker community with a maker contest!

  4. How will entries be judged?
    A panel of library staff will judge entries on a 10-point scale in five categories including originality of the project, skill level, effort, complexity of the project, and a subjective overall feel. We will also be adding a bonus percentage to those who are amateur makers. This year we will have judging categories for paper, textile, woodworking, plastic & foam, and electronics. The totals for each entrant will be averaged, and prizes are awarded based on an entrant’s overall score.
