Memories at Active Rain Contest Winners Announced!

Check out the winners of the "Memories at ActiveRain Contest below! Chris ~ you did a great job re-capping this contest for Bob.

When Robert Swetz asked me to help him out with his contest, Memories at Active Rain, I did not know what I was getting into!  Judging all these wonderful entries was very difficult for everyone.  I did love reading them all and learning more about the Active Rain members who posted.  Thank you so much to everyone who entered this contest.

The prizes are:

3000 for first
 2000 for second
 1000 for third

 200 for every entry (in addition to the points you got for posting the blog)

And my favorite:

In addition to the points that will be awarded to the winners starting with (fourth) place to (twenty fifth) place, these winners will be given a signed photograph print from Robert Swetz (11x14) in size and mailed directly to you.

That is a total of 21 photo prints for winners!  I'd trade my points for that any day.  I have a signed photo from Robert, it's truly a work of art.

So, the winners are:

Contest Winners

First place: Marchel Peterson
Marchel's post tied her Active Rain points memories to real life events.  I remember her 300,000 points and our Son out of Iraq post and remember being so relieved for her family that her son was home and safe. 

Second place: Lori Cain
Lori's post was about a mistake that she made and shared here on Active Rain.  C Tann Starr featured her mistake in Club Chaos and hilarity ensued.  That's when Lori finally felt at home on Active Rain, the day her fellow rainers laughed WITH her.

Third Place: Clint Miller
Clint's post is very personal.  He shared with us his life's journey and was very open about choices he's made along the way.  Thank you Clint for reminding us to be thankful and to honor our paths.

In no particular order, the winners of a signed photograph from Robert Swetz (click their name to view their contest entry, they are all very good):

Jason Crouch

Congratulations to all our winners and all our participants.  You ALL did a great job, you made it very difficult to choose only a few winning entries!

You can shop for your photographs by visiting or visiting Robert's blog on Active Rain.  Have fun shopping!  I have one at my house and I LOVE it.  Be prepared to spend some time there, there is a lot of variety and so many to choose from. Then simply email Robert and he'll take care of the rest.
