THANK YOU to all who voted and shared this contest information! I was selected as one of the scholarship winners and hope I can make this work now with my summer schedule. I so appreciate the support and kind words - and look forward to attending this exciting event if I can! Click here to see all the winners.
Dear friends of MoD,
Netroots Nation - a sort of progressive summer camp for bloggers, activists, and advocates - just happens to be taking place in Detroit this summer. And Detroit just happens to be in my home state of Michigan, where I just happen to have unlimited free childcare (thanks, Mom & Dad!).
And the featured guest speaker just happens to be Elizabeth Warren.
And I just happen to have wanted to attend this event for years (having heard rave reviews from others who've attended), but the timing/pricing/logistics have never been right.
This year I think I can do it.
But not without a scholarship.
I humbly ask you to take 5 seconds to vote for me in this contest so that I have a chance to win a scholarship that would cover the registration fee and lodging. Voting ends at 11:59pm (Pacific Time) on May 12, 2014.
It really does just take a second, and I promise that whatever I learn at this conference will be paid back in future writing, organizing, and general world-a-better-place-making!
And, if you're feeling extra votey, please take a minute to share some love with fellow grassroots organizers Chris McDonough (SPARC, Wisconsin Grassroots Network) and Marcia Riquelme (Deforest Area Progressives, Wisconsin Grassroots Network).
