Win Kano computer kits for your Dojo!

***Application now closed***

We are processing all the applications and will be in touch soon with more info!

We’re working with the awesome folks at Kano to bring Kano kits to the CoderDojo community! To do this we are running a competition for Dojos to enter to win a set of  Kanos for use at their sessions! This opportunity is open to ALL verified CoderDojos globally that are registered on Zen!
These kits are being provided for Dojos as a resource to use for their sessions and should be kept by the Dojo for use on a regular basis to give as many youth attendees the opportunity to learn more about Raspberry Pi and computing. This is a great opportunity for young people at your Dojo to learn more about the hardware side of things!

Application is closed!

Please note: This competition is for CoderDojo champions / mentors to apply on behalf of their Dojo. All applicants MUST be either a champion / mentor of the Dojo to be eligible to apply and win. Entering does not guarantee that your Dojo will be selected. The competition closes on the 10th of Feb 2016 at 24:00 midnight (GMT) due to a huge amount of interest from Dojos. Please read all rules carefully before applying:– Applications must be made on behalf of a Dojo and not an individual.

– All CoderDojos who apply have to be verified and registered on Zen, the CoderDojo Community Platform.
– This opportunity is open to all Dojos meeting the criteria above (verified & registered on Zen).
– The Kano Kits will be shipped in batches of 4. (we update this number to 4 which give kits to as many Dojos as possible)
– The competition closes on the 15th of Feb 2016 at 24:00 midnight (GMT).Please make sure ALL details are filled in correctly, if they are incorrect your application will not be accepted.
