Contests!

Posted Wed, Jul. 17th 2019 in News

Contests are a tradition at KansasFest and a great way to be more involved. Plus, we have awesome prizes for the winners.

HackFest – Starting Wednesday morning and going through Saturday, coders write original programs using specific tools and languages native to the Apple II, then show them off to the conference attendees. A panel of judges reviews and selects the winners (1st, 2nd and 3rd place). Please see the Official HackFest Rules and archive of past entries.

Door Sign – A door sign can say a lot about the attendees. Where you’re from, who you are and what your interests are. You can put up a poster, picture or anything clever or fanciful (usually Apple II related) to wow the judges. You’ll need to use masking tape (no tacks or anything that would leave a hole in the door) to hang your door sign. Judging occurs at Friday’s pizza banquet.

Wacky Tie – KFest alum Roger Wagner was known for his colorful taste in ties. We honor his past contributions to KFest by having a wacky tie contest every year. Ties can be wacky, metaphorical, traditional or nostalgic in nature. It comes down to whatever strikes the judge’s fancy. Bring your ties to Friday’s pizza banquet.
