Champion Program

What is this program?

A Polygon Champion is a developer who builds, teaches, shares and supports other developers to be successful using Polygon. They write content, share on social media, respond to forum questions, contribute to related GitHub projects, organize events, and more. The Champions program is designed to recognize and support you to continue to spread that Polygon โค๏ธ to as many developers as possible.

What do I have to do to be considered a Champion?

To be considered a champion, you must already be actively using, building with, and sharing your knowledge of Polygon. In particular, we look for the following type of activities:

  • Community building - You create or manage an in-person or online group, helping to host events, workshops, campus activities or webinars.
  • Community support and mentorship - you are actively responding to questions online via Stack Overflow, Reddit, etc to help developers build with Polygon.
  • Content creation - you have created new content in the form of blogs, videos, or code and shared with your audience in the past 60 days. Write on any topic you like, as long as it uses Polygon in some way. Anything you create is owned by you. At times, we may share your content across our channels, but donโ€™t worry, we will always ask first ๐Ÿ˜‰
