    Thank you everybody.  I still can't believe I won.  It's been a fun month.  I've really enjoyed it and I'm kinda sad it's ending.

    Hey there folks!

    Well, we are coming to the wind-down of the contest. I can't believe we are already one month hence...

    So today's daily drawing winner is once again Ben Greenfield for his hub Why Magnesium Is The Most Important Mineral You’re Probably Not Getting!. Listen to the man!

    Today there were 18 hubs total.

    So as you probably know, to day is the LAST DAY to submit a hub for the daily drawing. The final topic for the daily drawing is Tips n' Advice.

    And don't forget that Wednesday, we choose the final Best Hub and People's Choice awards, and then on April 2nd, we will be awaqrding the Grand Prize Winner...eeep!

    Stay tuned,

    Jacob

    I had a lot of fun doing the Helpful Health contest, I even won one of the drawings and that really added to my experience. I hope to be able to enter into more events like this one. Great Idea!!!

    Congrats, Ben!

    I, too am going to miss the contest!  The good news is there are still quite a few hubs I didn't get finished "in time" that I can now revisit.  It was a great way to discover a world of topics.  Thanks, Jacob and Jason for all your hard work!

    Hi Hubbers!
    Well, we've reached the end of the road for the Daily Drawing. I can't believe that nearly a full month had gone by!

    The Healthy Helpful Hubs Contest's final daily winner is Green Lotus for her great hub Are You a Health Freak?...Well? Are ya?

    I just want to take a minute to thank everyone for all the great hubs that were written for the contest. As I've said many times already, I wish I were able to hand out more prizes. The content created on a daily basis was just remarkable. Thank you everyone.

    BUT, the contest is not quite over. Stay tuned for Wednesday's People's Choice and Best Hub drawings, and then on April 2nd, we announce the grandaddy winner of the whole contest in the Grand Prize Drawing.

    Also, if you haven't been able to submit any hubs in time, or have only partially finished ideas, finish up what you've started and publish them!

    Cheers, Jacob.

    Everyone who participated should be proud of their efforts. The 1,110 Hubs (yes, that's one-thousand, one-hundred and ten) were full of tons of useful health information and advice to hopefully millions of ongoing readers.

    Give yourselves a big pat on your collective backs on a job well done, and congratulations to all the winners! smile

    I'm still waiting for affidavits for 2 winners of daily drawings (I'm posting here, in case they aren't checking their email, or >gasp!< my emails are trapped in their Junk Mail folders...)

    - phoxphire
    - Debby Bruck

    Please check your email, and return your signed affidavits to me so I can send you your $50 prize winnings! (If I don't hear from you, I'll assume you've forfeited and will pass on your winnings to the runner-up for the day)

    1. Jason Menayan profile image61
      Jason Menayanposted 10 years agoin reply to this

      Since Debby and phoxphire never responded, we have 2 runner up winners:

      - Green Lotus (for day 5)
      - allpurposeguru (for day 14)

      They will receive the $50 prize, provided they are eligible.

    I'd also like to thank our panel of judges again:

    Congrats Green Lotus and allpurposeguru

    I was only able to submit 6 hubs for this contest. Since I knew next to nothing about the subjects, I had to do a lot of research.

    I'm happy to say that the six hubs I did for this contest are earning more than my earlier hubs are. If I was just writing from the top of my head, I would not have done the extra research (including keyword research.) smile

    Health is not something I would have considered writing about. So, thanks for the contest guys! I'm looking forward to the next one.

    Glad to hear that, wyanjen!

    That is, of course, one of our primary goals: for Hubbers to publish high-quality, informative Hubs that generate healthy traffic for you and us for years to come.

    The next contest will launch in June. Stay tuned...but I will give you a hint:

    The contest should whet your appetite.
