Ultimate Content Warrior Challenge
UCW Championship Belt
Perhaps the most coveted item in the industry (no, not really), the 2021 Ultimate Content Warrior will be crowned (belted?) with the custom winner’s belt. It’s pretty sweet.
The winner will receive a $5,000 contract to create a course sharing their knowledge for Project 24 members. Just think about how much thai curry you could buy with that!
A 55-Gallon Drum of Thai Curry
How will we mail this to the winner? We really have no idea, but we’re doing it… Our lawyer made us say that we reserve the right to give an equivalently awesome prize if not feasible.

How is the winner chosen?
Our judges will score each entry and publish a leaderboard after each challenge so you can see how you’re doing. After the first 5 challenges, the top-ranked 80 competitors will have their scores wiped clean and will compete with cuts after each challenge. The final contestants will compete head-to-head for the belt and title of Ultimate Content Warrior!
Can I do both tracks?
Technically, you can, but we’d advise against it. Put everything you got into one or the other for the best chance to win.
Will I get kicked out if I lose a challenge?
In the first few challenges challenges, everyone gets a score for their submission and all scores are put on a leaderboard. Nobody gets kicked out so you can use the challenges to help you to create content for your site. After the first few challenges, we’ll begin making cuts. After Challenge #5, we’ll wipe the scoreboard for those still in the challenge, and cuts will be made based on how they do going forward. In the end, the finalists will compete head-to-head until we find the Ultimate Content Warrior!
Do you have to be a Project 24 member?
No, this contest is available for anyone who wants to compete.
Why are you doing this?
Uh… because it’s a worldwide competition where the winner gets a 55 gallon drum of thai curry and the topic is about content creation. That’s literally been Jim’s nightly dream for the last decade. I doubt he’ll sleep for the next month just waiting for this!
What are the legal details?
This contest is void where prohibited by law. No purchase is necessary to win and purchasing Project 24 does not increase or decrease your chances of winning. All judging will be done at the sole discretion of Income School LLC.
Who are the judges?
Jim, Ricky, Nathan, Anna, Andrea, Nate. The Income School crew!
How long does the contest last?
We begin January 1. In the first stage, there will be 2 challenges per week. We’ll narrow the list of contestants down until late January when we’ll have finalists who will compete head-to head. It’ll all end in early February but we haven’t yet announced the date of the final announcement of the winner.
