Help Josh Get To Hackaday Finals

Hello Friend family and Chattanooga Community. I need a little help to go a long way to California and back. I have been competing in the last few months in the Hackaday.io engineering competitions which is nationally recognized. Out of five rounds I won 3 times and I am now a semifinals. I was asked to come to Hackaday Superconference in Pasedena California on Nov 2 2018. This is where I will bring my project and Demo live for judges. I could potentially win a college education paid for up to $50,000 5 individuals will win in a tiered award system. I am one of only 10 invited to come participate out of over 1800 competitors! That being said Hackaday has helped with the materials and supplies for the project and also paid for the actual ticket to the conference ,but I still need to get the plane ticket to get there!  I am a bigger guy and the airlines want me to buy two seats, given the short notice of the additional expense I really need your help getting to the competition and potentially getting a college education I have been working towards. Anything helps! 




I have three winning projects going to the semi- finals
