Talented young entrepreneurs and Makers bring creative projects to life and ideas to reality at the North Bay Make-A-Thon on March 5-6 at SOMO Village in Rohnert Park, presented by Sonoma State University and North Bay iHub. Hackers, makers, artists, engineers, designers, developers, students and public are creating teams to make and compete in this unique 27-hour session to design and build innovations for a chance at a $2,500 grand prize.

The event is open to the public, with free admission, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on March 6 at SOMO Village in Rohnert Park. The event will also feature live music and food trucks.

Projects are judged on creativity, originality and how the innovation addresses a problem. Participants will also be designing artwork as part of the Make-A-Thon with the chance of having it displayed around Rohnert Park's Sonoma Mountain Village. The five winning artistic designs will then be placed at locations around the site, with the intent of promoting creativity within the community. Each of the five winning artistic teams will be awarded $1,000 for their art.
