### [$50] Level 0 - BASIC: Develop a Basic Smart Contract in the Clarity Programming Language for the Stacks 2.0 Blockchain
### Prize Bounty
$50 USD to the top 5 projects submitted. Winners will be contacted by Blockstack for payment.
### Challenge Description
In Level 0 - BASIC, developers will build simple, but fully-functional smart contracts. The goal is for these contracts to demonstrate key features of Clarity and provide the community with a tangible first-look at what’s possible using the language.
To get started, we recommend heading to the "Resources" section of the **[Clarity Hackathon](https://community.blockstack.org/clarity-resources)** homepage.
Get to meet other hackers in our **Discord** community! We set up a dedicated #hackathon support thread for all your hacking queries.
### Level 0 Overview
These will be the “lowest hanging fruit” of the smart contract tree. A rudimentary smart contract, demonstrating just a handful of Clarity design principals. Exhibits an introductory understanding of the language, and the fundamental mechanisms of smart contracts. Self-contained; a Clarity “tech demo”. Small number of methods, functions, variables, etc. Elementary testing and commenting. More of a Bob Ross painting than the Mona Lisa.
- Example: [Simple Clarity Counter](https://docs.blockstack.org/core/smart/tutorial-counter.html)
### Submission Deadline
The entry and submission period for Hackathon Phase 1: Contracts: commences on May 14, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. E.D.T. and ends on May 29, 2020 at 11:45 pm E.D.T. ("Phase 1")
### Submission Requirements
1. The contract and tools must be built for Blockstack's Clarity smart contracting language;
2. The contract and tools must be the original work of the individual participant or the participating team; and
3. Any third-party technology used by the individual participant or the participating team must be subject to valid perpetual, irrevocable licenses.
### Judging Criteria
Category | Description
-- | --
Design | Is the smart contract well-structured, and broken into logical functions?
Functionality | How powerful or robust is the functionality the smart contract provides?
Use of Clarity Reference | How many different Clarity functions, keywords, or design principles are used?
Originality/Creativity | How unique or innovative is the mechanism smart contract? Has it been implemented before?
Real World Viability | How applicable is the smart contract to use in real world situations?
Documentation/Commenting | Does the project come accompanied by a comprehensive documentation or README? Is the code commented thoroughly so anyone could read through and discern its functionality?
### Winner Announcement Date
Our judges, **Diwaker Gupta**, Blockstack PBC Head of Engineering, and **Aaron Blankenstein**, Blockstack PBC Core Engineer, will select the winners before the start of the second phase of the hackathon on June 3, 2020.
