Send me to the Olympics!

So, I just entered The Globe and Mail Journalism Dream contest. Basically, I had to write a short article about a “fascinating or fun” sporting event that I’ve attended and now I need your help.

In order to get my article reviewed by the judges, I need to be in the top 50 in votes received. Since I’m not the brightest of the bunch, I didn’t realize that the voting period started on October 19th (even though the deadline to enter the contest isn’t until November 22nd), so I’m already in tough. But if you all could vote once per day hopefully I can make up some ground. If you’d really like to help out, it would be great if you could let all your friends know about this as well. And there’s something in it for you too. Every time you vote you are entered to win a new laptop!

The Grand Prize is the opportunity to be a “guest journalist” for The Globe and Mail at the Olympics, but there are a number of secondary prizes as well.

Thanks for your support!
