One month left—start your submission

There’s one month remaining in the Alexa Skills Challenge: Kids! Submissions are due January 10, 2018 before 5pm ET. We encourage you to finish up your project and submit it for certification in the U.S. Alexa Skills Store before the deadline. That way, if your skill does not pass certification, you'll still have some time to fix the issue. Skills must pass certification by January 17, 5pm ET in order to be eligible.

Start your submission now

Starting a submission is a good way to make sure that your skill meets the requirements. There’s nothing worse than getting to the deadline, only to realize that you’re missing a key component. Remember: once you submit a project, you can keep editing it as needed at any time prior to the submission deadline. Need a primer on how the submission form works? Head over to our submission form tutorial.

Prepare your video

Don’t forget that your submission must include a video demonstrating your skill, and that **extra rules apply** for this competition. Read the additional submission video rules and get video-making tips here. As always, we strongly recommend that you don’t wait to the last minute.


If you have any questions about the hackathon, please post on the discussion forum.
