The Design-a-thon Organizers are interested in getting your feedback on if we should extend the deadline for submitting a Capstone Project.

Based on feedback we have received, we wanted to ask the community if you would like a ~ 1 week extension to Submit a Capstone Project. The deadline would be Sunday, November 29 at Midnight ET instead of Tuesday, November 24 at Midnight ET in case you would like to use the weekend after the Thanksgiving holiday to finalize your project. Go to the Vote on Nov 29 Midnight Extension Post in the Q&A Help Forum and Vote Thumbs Up or Down. Provide comments to the post if you have additional feedback.
