Freescale announced their 2011 Make It Challenge!

The contest has two tracks: one for designs using the Tower System, and a second for designs with the Mechatronics Robot Platform.

In order to enter the contest, you have to register for and attend the 2011 FTF Americas conference June 20-23, 2011 in San Antonio, TX. While the registration fees for this con run around $950 (through May 27, 2011), the prizes are substantial, including $1,000, $2,000 and $3,000 prizes in each category, as well as a grand prize of a Freescale Motorsports VIP Weekend package.
