Diverging from the regular craft challenge, how about we have a challenge where we craft a prototype of something we write a free-use pattern for? All of the patterns could be added to the pattern/tutorial pages in their respective boards, and the winner would get a prize and/or a donation to the charity of their choice.
For example, an entrant would-
*design an afghan pattern
*knit or crochet a prototype
*post the pattern for use in charity crafting
*your pattern might also include design features inspired by your favorite charity cause/organization, e.g. pink ribbons for breast cancer or the puzzle pieces logo for autism.
What do y'all think?
