I love that thing where you can turn an unordered-list into a side-opening menu system. That could be extended further with some nifty DOM scripting, to do things like re-write the CSS to switch orientation on the fly (and make any of it work in IE)
So I'd vote for a competition along the lines of "create [something] using any hybrid variety of techniques, that fulfils a functional remit" with points awarded for creativity, ingenuity, efficiency, degrading, accessibility. And coolness, obviously
It would also be ultra-cool if the competition could be handicapped - so that people at all stages of learning have a chance of winning, not just the most experienced; or perhaps different categories, with a winner in each.
