    This contest is a great idea, I think it should be running annually or on some other, regular basis. I think it’s safe to say that all electronics hobbyists have a few of those 555 ICs left, slowly coming to disuse due to MCUs taking over what 555 circuits used to do, and it would be nice to use the 555 for something fun.

    That said, I looked at the finalists and it appears that at least three of the finalists entered with a servo control project. There’s nothing wrong with 555 servo control, just seems it would be nicer to cover more of different types of projects and just leave one of its kind among the finalists.

    Anyways, great idea!
