There’s only one week left to enter your submission to the Amazon Raise-Up Buildathon. Don’t wait until the last minute - submissions are due July 15 before 5pm EDT. (Find out what time that is in your city)

Start your submission now
Starting a submission is a good way to make sure that your project meets the requirements. There’s nothing worse than getting to the deadline, only to realize that you’re missing a key component. Remember: once you submit a project, you can keep editing it as needed at any time prior to the submission deadline. Need a primer on how the submission form works? Head over to our submission form tutorial.
Prepare your video
Don’t forget: your submission must include a video showing your submission AND include the #AmazonRaiseUpBuildathon. Too often, participants leave this video to the last minute without realizing that it’s an important way to showcase your work for the judges. If you need some help getting started, check out our video-making tips!
Pro Tip: Don't wait until the last minute to upload your video. Due to file size, format, and your Internet connection, uploading a video to Facebook Video, YouTube, Vimeo, or Youku could take anywhere from a few minutes to several hours. We cannot stress this enough! There have been many times a submission becomes ineligible due to errors with video rendering and uploading.
You are almost to the finish line!
