Two weeks to go – submit early!

There are two weeks left to enter your submission to the Amazon Raise-Up BuildathonSubmissions are due July 15 before 5pm EDT. (Find out what time that is in your city)

If you haven't started a submission yet, please do so now. (We’ll walk you through our submission form process if you need help.)  And if you've just recently joined the challenge, explore the Slack Channel, the Resources Tab and your “to-do” list for more info to help you get started.

Submission checklist

Run through this list before you sit back from your project:

  • Are you submitting a solution that helps the nonprofit sector and cultural institutions engage the public to drive critical donations, uphold mission delivery, and address the evolving challenges faced by the sector?
  • Does your submission use one or more AWS products and services?
  • If you’re building an Alexa Skill, did you integrate Amazon Pay?
  • Have you created a submission video? Does your video clearly demonstrate the functionality of the application?(See these video-making tips)

Did you provide access to your code repository? Your code may be public or private, but if it is private, access must be given to testing@devpost.com AND Nonprofit-buildathon@amazon.com.

Be sure to read through the official rules more than once. Or better yet, have a friend or colleague provide a second pair of eyes to make sure you didn’t miss anything.

Good luck!
