Well, you do need to post it on Instructables and the more details about how you made it, the better :)

Work for K'nex! In sponsored 'Ibles contests you have to work for the sponsoring company in order to be a judge.

Oh, ok. I don't really want to get involved with entering stuff, because I know I will not win. :)

You might win it doesn't hurt to try. i think i will enter even if i don't win it will be a fun challenge to help spark my creativity and it would be cool to win the prizes too.

K'NEX is just a prize provider, not a sponsor, so they will have a little input on judging, but ultimately the contest will be judged in the same way other contests are judged on Instructables. We could definitely use all the help we can get in judging, (though if you make it to the finalists you won't be able to help judge, of course, haha). You can sign up to help judge contests on this forum thread https://www.instructables.com/community/Call-for-co...

Anyone can be a judge if you have published at least one Instructable and we will definitely need help judging this one! You should definitely still enter the contest, but if you make it to the finalists you won't be able to help judge, of course, haha :)

If you want to help judge any other contests, feel free to sign up on this forum thread! https://www.instructables.com/community/Call-for-co...

Cool. I'm with CorgiCritter on this one. It would be cooler for me to judge than to enter, but either way I'll be involved.

Whoops, disregard ^ comment.

If it's a sponsored contest judges come from the sponsoring company.
