December 1, 2021 It’s December! Time For Our Annual Big Give!

We know you want more, so our team at Topcoder is delivering for the fourth annual December’s Big Give! Just days removed from TCO21 filled with live broadcast videos, photos, and more, we are back and ready to give our members, and newbies, more Topcoder fun! 

The goal of December’s Big Give is to give weekly rewards for our community members just for competing! That means by coming to Topcoder, participating in a challenge of any kind, and submitting, you’re being entered into a drawing for cash. All Topcoder challenges (including Marathon Matches and Single Round Matches) within the week count with the exception of tasks which are excluded from this contest. 

Plus we have ways to earn just by submitting articles and referring friends for our freelance gigs.
