Six lucky entrants will earn fame, fortune and a WorkBench custom-engraved with their name or logo!

We are lucky to have Dale Dougherty as our celebrity judge for 2019. Take this opportunity to strut your stuff for Dale, as well as your friends, family, colleagues, and the MakerSpace.


Dale Dougherty, the founder of the Maker Movement, and head of Make Community is our 2019 Celebrity Judge. Dale will use his experience and knowledge of a wide array of electronic projects to select one winning project.


Entrants should encourage the community to “vote” or “like” their projects. One vote per person per day is allowed. The highest vote-getter will be awarded the top prize, with the next three highest earning runners-up prizes. Between September 9 and October 18, members of the public may vote for their favorite entry. Entrants may vote for their own project. Only one vote per day, per person.


Chris and Barbara Lehenbauer, the Phase Dock founders, will select a project for this prize. Clarity, ingenuity, creativity, quality of presentation, and execution of the WorkBench Electronic Project will be important. Friends, family and collaborators of Phase Dock are not eligible for this prize.

You Have the Power!

We are looking forward to hearing from you — the owners of Phase Dock WorkBenches. It’s super important to us to know that the WorkBench and its various components are performing as you expected when you bought your project development kit. We thought a project-building contest would be a fun way to find out.

Your ideas will influence how we evolve and extend the WorkBench ecosystem. It’s that simple.
