Mouser Electronics challenges designers to celebrate the beautiful game

Mouser Electronics is celebrating a summer of football with a contest that allows designers to share their passion not only for ‘the beautiful game’ but also for innovative electronics design.

In anticipation of the summer’s worldwide football competition, Mouser’s team in Munich has built scoreboards to keep up with all the matches and scores. Now, Mouser announces the Build a Scoreboard Contest and invites designers to test their electronics mettle by building a working electronic scoreboard.

Designers can tweet their entries between 14 May 2018 and 30 June 2018, and the contest is open to EU residents only. Designers of the scoreboards that show the correct teams and score in the final match will have a chance to win one of the following prizes:

  • First Prize: FlashForge Finder 3D printer, an easy-to-use, fully assembled 3D printer, plus 1 kg of black PLA filament.
  • Second and Third Prizes: A Mouser ice bucket to keep drinks cold at the next barbecue.

All winners will also receive a prize pack containing a Mouser T-shirt.
