2016 is off and running, and we're sure you have as many exciting plans for the year as we do. Make any resolutions for the New Year? Here's a change to get off to a great start, and win a ridiculously cool prize pack filled with fun stuff to make the year awesome.

Things like a littleBits Smart Home kit, some wireless earbuds, a solar powered battery backup, 360 degree portable speakers, and a year of Remember the Milk Pro - to keep your 2016 todo list in order.

And, since February is a bit of a short month, we'll just tack that on to the contest so you have some extra time.

To win that prize pack of awesome, build something that helps you accomplish some task, keep some New Year's resolution, reach a goal, be more productive - basically give you a jump start in 2016. As always, your submission needs to be created during the contest.
