What kinds of contests do YOU want to see on Instructables?

Hi everyone! As we're planning contests for the next year, we wanted to get suggestions and feedback on the types of contests we're running. :D

Is there a contest we ran years ago you'd like to see again?
Any contests you're sick of?
A weekly challenge you'd like us to expand on?
Do you want the contests to be more specific or more open ended?

We're trying to shake things up in contest-land - so any and all suggestions are welcome! I'm especially interested in what types of tech contests you guys would like to see, as well as ideas for food contests. 

P.S. For anyone wondering about weekly challenges - we're still trying to figure out a way to do it that makes it easy for you guys to enter and easy for the editors here to run. But I promise we are discussing it! :)

Have prize suggestions? Check this topic.
Want to get a preview of some of our upcoming contests?

How about a Fidget contest? They have to make something that you could use everyday to keep yourself busy. It could be very useful to those with ADD or ADHD.

Maybe something related to giving back/volunteering/Random Acts of Kindness? Some people might not know how to get started volunteering or getting involved with their community.

I agree, it would be interesting and heart warming to see how people interpret that as a challenge theme. It would likely bring awareness to all kinds of things most of us don't even have on our radar.
