Please VOTE: HTRYN Scholarship Contest

Voting and awarding scholarships for the How To Revise Your Novel Scholarship Contest was delayed because I’ve been sick.

However, I finally got the poll together.

There will be six scholarship winners. Five will win either a full scholarship to How To Revise Your Novel or a $150 cash prize payable via PayPal (winner’s choice).

The sixth, the grand prize winner, will receive both.

You have one week to vote, and may vote for your three favorite candidate videos once per day between today, Monday, January 25th, and Monday, February 1st. The poll will close February 1st, and I’ll tally scores, and announce the contest winners Tuesday, February 2nd.

Here’s how the voting works. I’ll add the number of votes here, plus the number of views, votes, and stars each video gets on YouTube along with my judging criteria to pick FIVE scholarship recipients, including the grand prize winner, who gets both the cash prize AND the scholarship.

The wildcard winner will receive a scholarship based on votes here plus YouTube views, votes, and stars. (This is the video ONLY you select.)

All videos are linked in the poll via a single new window. You can click each link, and it will open in the same window, making voting easier. Work your way up the list from the bottom, down the list from the top, or however you choose, check each of your three top choices, and submit your vote. If you’re so inclined, you can repeat the same process for the following six days.

HTRYN Scholarship Voting.
You may vote for THREE.

    Thank you, everybody who voted for my video! I’m glad you liked it.

  • Emily Jan 27, 2010 @ 23:07

    Thanks vanity. You’re right 🙂

    Emily, I initially thought it would only let me vote once, but now I get the impression that there is an individual cool down of 24 hours, rather than a “vote once per day” policy. So if you vote at 6 pm, then you can’t vote directly after midnight, but rather after at least one day has passed.

    As for “This way and that” being withdrawn – that’s a shame, it was a really good entry.

    The poll won’t let me vote more than once.

    And I’m all about the merit scholarships! 🙂

    I second merit scholarships. I e-mailed you a couple of days ago about it. 🙂

    I voted for my favorites and blogged about the contest. Like Danzier, I would love for you to offer merit scholarships in the future.

    “If you like the idea of merit scholarships for my big courses, and
    think you might like to participate in one in the future, please let me
    know. You can add a comment to the poll, OR to my writing diary.”

    I’ll vote for more merit scholarships, and try to enter those I can. 😀

    Definitely a hard choice as there are many good entries.

  • Greg Jan 25, 2010 @ 17:35

    I have a favourite four so will consistently vote for my top two and alternate my third!
    Well done to everyone who had a go.

  • Brittany Jan 25, 2010 @ 17:22

    Those were very entertaining. 🙂 I made a list of all of them and rated each out of 10. Then I picked the top six and I’m planning to alternate voting for them.
