Hi Elsa,
I'm sorry that residents of Iran are not able to enter this project.

Why individuals from Iran are not eligible? Diplomacy is not individuals business. Our business is education and knowledge and our duty is share it with other people. I want to take part in this challenge.

Yes! The list of exclusions can be found in the legal agreement. I've pasted in a relevant section below:

"Exclusions – Individual Innovators must not be (i) an employee of The Coca-Cola Company, HeroX, PBC, HelloWorld, Inc., any corporate parent or subsidiary company of any of the foregoing corporate entities; (ii) a member of the immediate family of an employee of any of the foregoing corporate entities in this subsection; (iii) an individual with a residence in or who is a national of Cuba, Iran, Syria, North Korea, or Sudan; or (iv) an individual who is subject to export controls or sanctions of the U.S."
