Show Us A Better Way competition closes Sept 30: get your entries in!

There are already hundreds of entries – which means that the judging process will be rather complex. In fact, if anyone has ideas for how the competition could use crowdsourcing (aka voting) in order to choose the finalists for consideration by a judging panel, we’d be interested to hear so we can pass them on.
