Participants picked one of five categories for their submissions: DIY Deployments, Maintainer Must-Haves, Phone-Friendly, Interesting IoT, or Wacky Wildcards.

After much deliberation between the DEV and GitHub teams, the final results are in and we're so excited to announce the winners of the 2021 GitHub Actions Hackathon.

For the DEV sticker pack, you would have received an email from the DEV team. You would have also received an email from the GitHub team (ie. me 😉 ) on the 5th January regarding your prize.

@paulasantamaria GitHub Action was literally mind blowing.
Since I m open source enthusiast the concept of contribution to open source project and fun game was well blended.
I personally learned new things from the hackathon thanks to the GitHub and Devto Team for organizing such an Amazing Hackathon ✨
And Congrats to all the Winners🎉🥳👏
