Thanks to the sponsors HP and IvyWorldwide for all that you did behind the scenes to ensure the contest went off without a hitch.
A special thank you to the fans that voted on these great blogs.
In closing I hope that all involved had a great time and learned as much as I did. There where some growing pains due to this being THE first contest of its kind. In spite of that, I really appreciate how we all (bloggers, judges and sponsors) came together to ensure the success of the contest.
I also hope that this will not be the last of its kind. This contest did so much for all those involved in that it gave a venue in which you get and give feedback to better yourself. Which, in my opinion, will make us all better in conveying information that ALL of us can benefit and learn from.
