Congradulations to ALL who entered the online challenges.

I guess this excludes the Autodesk® Inventor® 2010 Digital Prototyping challenge? Because the winners are not announced yet for that. :wink:

Watch for news today…

There was a call for additional information from a few of those entries thus a delay.

Are the essay winners not announced yet, or am I blind? Either are equally likely, heheh… :rolleyes::smiley:

You are correct they are not posted yet, so you aren’t blind :wink: probably a good thing.

The Autodesk® Inventor® 2010 Digital Prototyping award winners are now posted:

The VEX Robotics Essay Contest is being evaluated by a different group of volunteer judges and there are a LOT of entries to judge! It will still be a little while until they are done.
