2019 Membership Survey Contest

    Congratulations to our contest winners!

    Thanks to the more than 7,500 people who enterered our Membership Survey Contest. Your feedback has been critical to the development of our membership program.

    As promised, we held a random prize draw from the contest entries in March. Here are the winners who have consented to our publishing their names:

    • Lin Crampton, Los Alamitos, USA
    • Joeri Jungschlager, Rotterdam, Netherlands
    • Fernando Barcina Perez, Logrono, Spain
    • Om Maui Pokharel, Edmonton, Canada
    • Josh Siddoway, Saratoga Springs, USA
    • Willy Weinmann, Oberstadion, Germany


    Other names drawn were from Italy, Mali, and USA

    We hope our winners enjoy their new robots!


    We invite our community to continue to participate in the survey, however new entries will not be eligible for this contest.


    We'd like to know more about our community, and we'd like you to know more about us. So we've created a short nine-question survey to about our coming Membership program:

    • What kind of member benefits are most wanted?
    • What and how to want to talk to us?
    • What can LPI membership do for you?

    To encourage participation in the survey we're holding a contest and giving away 10 prize packs, each of which contains a kit for building an open source robot penguin! The robots are programmable (using Arduino Nano and an available app), fully open source (both hardware and software) and battery powered. Ten people who participate in the survey before March 15 2019 will win!


    The prizes


    LPI offered ten (10) prize packs, each of which contains:

    • Adeept Penguin Robot Kit
    • 2x18650 Batteries and battery charger (where allowed by postal regulations, see below)
    • Cable Organizer Bag
    • LPI Penguins and stickers

    (Note regarding batteries: Some countries do not allow Lithium batteries to be shipped to them through the postal service. Contest winners who live in countries to which we cannot ship Lithium batteries will receive the battery charger but no batteries. and no substitutions.)


    Winner selection

    The contest closed at 23:59 UTC March 15 2019; after that date 10 email addresses will be drawn at random from the collected surveys.

    The membership survey will continue to run after March 15, however completed surveys will no longer be eligible for the contest.


    Other contest rules

    Residents of countries, states and provinces in which such contests are illegal or require local registration are not eligible to win.
