Pick the contest winners: vote now!

We need your help one last time in the Student Website Participation Contest. This step is perhaps the most fun of all!

Your votes will decide 3 of the 5 winners:

1. The most informative comment,

2. The most interesting comment, and

3. The most informative post.

Voting is open now through 11:45PM this Saturday, August 4, 2007. Each winner will receive a $150 prize package.

Another category, the most interesting comment, will be selected by the contest administration committee. The final category will be selected via a random drawing from everyone who commented or posted at the site during the contest period (from May 15 to July 7, 2007).

How to Vote

Review finalist comments and finalist posts below and vote here. The free version of SurveyMonkey doesn’t allow embedded HTML… so… be warned, there are no hot links when you’re voting!

Finalist Comments

The first two categories, most informative and most interesting comments, share the same 8 finalists. You can also choose another comment from all those made on any day between May 15, 2007 and July 7, 2007 as a write-in vote. [One exception: any comments by contest administration committee members (Rachel Chung, Yukika Awazu and myself) are ineligible.]

The comments are listed in date order — from least recent to most recent.
