We’ve decided to extend the date we’re accepting new entries for September’s contest. Submit your entry by Monday, September 19th @ 8:00PM ET!
A few people emailed me saying they were hard-pressed to get an entry submitted by the September deadline, but they’d try. We had a flurry of activity on this blog as we received twenty times the normal amount of daily hits. I even got my “hopes up”!
And when all of the dust had cleared, there was one lone entry from an SBE Supplier who had a 100% completed application.
One?! I exclaimed! Where’s the contest in choosing from a field of one?
After all, unless you’re living under a dictatorship… Where’s the tension and excitement in a contest if you only had one candidate to vote for? Who’d go to the polls?
In a Solomon-like exercise in wisdom, here’s what we decided:
In the interest of making it a contest, we’re going to extend the entry date through the weekend, ending Monday evening at 8PM ET, Sept 19th. I’ll post the entries and voting will begin on Tuesday, Sept. 20th. The polls will close on Friday, September 23rd at 8:00PM ET and I’ll announce the winner.
Remember, the winning company gets promoted on the Supplier-Connection web portal for the entire month of October. All of you who were on the verge of entering, here’s your chance! Thanks for participating!
Good luck & Godspeed!
