One project down stereotypes about "the typical programmer," while others created interesting games and short stories with accompanying animations. The coding prowess demonstrated in each of these entries was truly fascinating -- congrats to all on a job well done!

Below are the winning entries, along with judging rationale from the Challenge Council.  Congratulations to everyone for their hard work, creativity, and enthusiasm!
