HubNugget Wannabes, Come on Down!
You May Be Next On The HubNugget is Right!
Come on down, Wannabes and Readers! We've got some great contestants this week on The HubNugget is Right.
There's no wheel spinning, price guessing or costumes required in this game, just great writing and good layout.
How to Play the Game
This one's easy. Ten great Wannabe HubNuggets have been chosen to sit in the contestant's box. Readers will cast their vote in the poll for their favourite hub. At the end of the voting week (Wednesday), the five hubbers with the highest percentage of votes win.
Tell Them What They Won, Johnny
Our winners get an all expenses paid spotlight in the weekly newsletter! *crowd goes wild*
But that's not all! Each of our five winners will receive a personal email form letter of congratulations from one of the HubNuggets team member.
There's still more! The five lucky winners will have their hub name and win mentioned in the forums.
*lots of applause, ooh's and aah's*
Okay, now you all know how to play and what the prizes are. Sooo, HubNuggets Wannabes, come on down!
