21 Day Coding Challenge

About the changes from PST to ET

#1

Hello @tim_lhl and other admins of light house labs. Earlier it said the day starts at 12:00 AM PST and ends at 11:59 PM PST. This was the case till the last day of competition release. Today it changed to ET.
Relying on PST which meant 3 AM ET I finished the challenge by 2:14 AM, since I also go to summer school and was working on an assignment. Does this mean I lost my entry to the finalist prize? Please don’t do this. It was clearly PST till the last challenge, it just got changed. Please still qualify me for the finalist prize draw because this is not fair. Check the screenshot of my email I received the challenge at 3:01 am which proves it was 12:00 AM PST till the last day release of the challenge.
