Rounds & Challenges
This is the place to go to see what your current challenge is. Check this page often to keep up to speed. Our prompts are provided on the day a round begins.

Got any questions? Consult our Guidelines or FAQs. Still need some clarification? Contact us and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
