PiSnap

13 & Under Category — Winner: Aaron Hill – PySnap



SmartSim

14-18 Category — Winner: Ashley Newson – SmartSim


The Raspberry Pi Foundation has just announced their Summer Coding Contest winners and runners up here.

Summer Coding Contest. We’d hoped to have the results ready weeks ago, but there were so many excellent entries to go through line-by-line that it’s taken us a little while; we were blown away by some of what you did. If you’re a winner, your prize will be on the way soon, just in time for Christmas. And if your winning software is available online somewhere (not all of it was) and we’ve missed it, please drop me a line so I can add a link to this post.

The first prize in both categories is $1000, with runners-up prizes of $200 in each category. Well done to all the winners, and thanks to everybody who entered. We look forward to doing this again!
