Chrome is a sweet browser, but we think you can make it even better. Submit a new Chrome extension to the Web Store and enter our challenge for a chance to win some awesome prizes & hacker cred!

Why extensions? They're fun, easy to distribute, work across platforms, and enable you to build additional services onto sites you already use.

Here are some resources to help you get started:


Anyone 13 years of age or older can participate.


  • No teams - this is a solo competition
  • Must be a new Chrome extension created after challenge start date
