Many, many months ago we announced a contest to encourage developers to contribute free widgets to the community. At the time of the contest announcement we never set a close date for the contest because we wanted to leave it open long enough to get several submissions. Over time we kind of forgot about it and have only had a few submissions, but we were recently reminded about the contest and are now setting an end date so that we can hand out prizes. Prizes for this contest include an Amazon Kindle, a USB hard drive, and a thumbdrive.
Submissions will be closed on the final day of 2011 and judged soon afterwards so that we can award the prizes. If you are considering entering the contest, please have your entry submitted to the free widgets forum no later than December 31st, 2011.
