Prizes for Contest Town winners...

Contest Town is a new group on Codetown. We just had our first contest at the beginning of the year. The winning entry is amazing. This group is destined to be a popular one and we're looking for sponsors for upcoming contests. You choose the prize. Cambridge sponsored the first contest and the winner, Eric Lavigne received $50.

The next contest is a challenging one. Here's the blurb:

Instant Runoff Voting (IRV) is a fascinating way to run an election. The basic idea is that voters rank the candidates and the votes for the least popular candidate are automatically moved to the remaining candidates until one is selected winner.

Ready for the challenge? Code up a solution in your favorite language by midnight Sunday, Febreary 14th, Eastern Standard Time. Submit it to contest at codetown dot us. Also, post the link or code on this Discussion so the group can see it. We're allowing a little more time for this contest, so the results will be judged by...you! A poll will be posted in Contest Town so you can vote for your favorite app. Maybe we can use IRV to decide?

The winner will receive ... This contest is sponsored by Your Company Name... company phrase, NPR style goes here...something catchy but understated.

I thought I'd give you the first shot at being a sponsor. Codetown now has over 500 members. Please let me know if you're interested...

All the best,

Mike
