@Caleb I contacted the Nation of Makers transition team about them getting involved in our community and got a response with a prize opportunity. Below is part of the e-mail response I received.
One upcoming opportunity that you and your colleagues might be interested in is the Infy Maker Awards, which are $10K awards for makers working on social impact projects. This year's themes include combating hunger and environmental sustainability, which is a perfect fit the work that you all are doing. I've included more details about how to enter the competition below- the deadline is next week, Feb. 28th. The application is really straightforward, you still have time to apply.
Looking forward to staying in touch!
