As part of the upcoming Christmas Party, we’re planning to host the Hackspace Awards to recognise the achievements and contributions within our community and we’d love to have your input and suggestions for the categories!
Keep It Fun: We’re about having a good time, so try to keep it friendly.
Think Outside the Box: Unique, quirky, and unexpected category ideas!
Inclusivity Matters: Suggest categories that everyone can get involved in, no matter their skill level.
Community Love: Categories that celebrate teamwork, mentoring, and the community spirit of the Hackspace.
They can be as sensible or off-beat as you like – just have a think about what you’d like to see recognised. Do you have something in mind? Drop it below in the comments before December 1st.
Looking forward to seeing the suggestions!
I have been meaning to throw in some ideas to get the ball rolling:
Most original use of a tool
‘So stupid it’s genius’ fix
Most creative bodge
most improved odour award
I don’t know if I know the space well enough to suggest a good category but I WILL TRY
- Keep Your Hands Inside the Vehicle - Member with the best Wednesday Tour banter
- Cyber Sculptor - Most elaborate thing made from the 3D printers
- Lungs of Oak - Most time spent in Woodworking
(to clarify, this wasn’t aimed at anyone)
I’d like to suggest one that adapt on the Chinwager one above, but make it for someone who is always in the space talking to everyone, new and established, making people feel welcome. The Socialite Award!
So that all members can feel represented, how about newcomer of the year? The person who joined in 2023 that’s had the most impact
