Contests & Prizes: I’m always on the look out for other contests or prizes.  If you have any ideas for prizes, if you would like to donate  a prize for this or future contests, or if you have suggestions for how to improve the CUP Contest, I’d love to hear them.  You can leave a comment on this page or email me at bio_dork(at)hotmail(dot)com. Also check out my Talk to Me!page for info about past contests, prizes and how I can accommodate sponsors.

PRIZES: The winner will be the first person to accrue 1000 internet points from participating in the CUP Contests.  Aside from having bragging rights forever, the current lame prize is that the winner gets to choose any topic that they’d like to see me do a blog about.  It can be a serious or humorous topic, it can be requested to be audio, video, written or – help us all – drawn/painted/sculpted or some other artistic rendering.  It can be on something I know nothing about, or something that I’ve written about in the past.  It can be dedicated to someone.  I will even include links if I approve of them beforehand.  I will reserve the right to veto any aspect of the request because I’m not going to do a post on something that could harm or embarrass me or other people in a bad way.  But other than that, all is fair game.
