In a previous post I promised information about a couple of contests. The first of those, which I posted about last week, was the Jump Start Your Business contest, being put on by the Business Channel bloggers at b5media.
The second is the Broadband Changed My Life contest:
The Broadband Changed My Life Contest is part of a nationwide effort by the Alliance for Public Technology (APT) to demonstrate how high speed Internet access is transforming every aspect of our lives on a personal level. APT wants you to share your story. Tell us why broadband internet access makes a critical difference in your everyday world and why you can’t imagine life without it.
Judges will select three prize winners: First place $1,000; second place $500; third place $250.
Having broadband is very important to me, mainly for the opportunity it provides for me to do business globally. And I do find it hard to contemplate how I could have otherwise the kind of business connections and possibilities which broadband provides.
Has it changed my life? I believe it has. But I can’t participate in the contest as participation is restricted to residents of the USA who are 18 years or older (no problem with the second condition, stymied by the first).
If you qualify and are interested, why not tell your story? There’s no time to waste. The contest started on August 13 and ends on Monday, October 1, 2007.
