Community Update: February 2019 Programming Contest Winners (Make Your Colors Count)!


Thank you to everyone who participated in February's Programming Contest! For this month's contest, the theme was about "making your colors count" -- entries had to use as few colors as possible in their projects. This was a true test of creativity, as entrants had to make very interesting and visually appealing projects while sticking to some very stringent guidelines! 

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

Remember: You never lose. Either you win or you learn :)
