    We have a lovely Day 22 winner today!

    Today's $50 Daily Drawing prize is for Walking Through a Forest Preserve in Spring Delights the Senses and Fosters Well-being by Happyboomernurse

    This Hub Answers a Weekly Topic Inspiration Question, so there is no Question winner.

    The Friday, Saturday, and Sunday Daily Drawing winners will be announced on Monday, along with the Best Questions and Answers of Week 3. Have a wonderful weekend!

    a bit confused about the contest thread - I thought I saw a phrase that said something to the effect of 'submit your hub answer' here, but then the message comes up when that the posting is overly-promotional. Help! I just want to be sure my recent Hub is entered in the contest smile and since the blue line outlining the title disappears after writing the title, I'm not sure if it was there in the first place when I started the hub.

      Ok Simone, pardon my ignorance but I thought that the deadline said Friday, March 30th at 12 PT?  Sorry if I missed a change somewhere.

      And congrats to today's winners!

        Hmm it's even in the rules - direct copy and paste from the contest page:

      I thought we had until the 30th for our final entries? The contest ends the 29th?

  11. Charlu profile image81
    Charluposted 5 years ago

    When did it change?

  12. Simone Smith profile image91
    Simone Smithposted 5 years ago

    Hey y'all! Sorry for the lack of clarity with our timing. There are only 28 sets of Daily Drawing prizes, but because people have often missed the final DD cutoff deadline in past contests, we've taken to looking at Hubs for our qualitative prizes (the weekly and final prizes) that have been published as many as 24 hours past the deadline.

    So yes- you can submit entries through the 30th at noon, but they will only be considered for the weekly and final prizes; anything published after noon PT today will not have a chance of winning a Daily Drawing prize.

    Hope that clears things up! My apologies for any confusion.  big_smile

    Simone - when evaluating the Weekly winners do you look through all entries after the deadline or have you been picking favorites on a day to day basis? The reason I ask is that I've just updated a Hub that I created on March 27!

    1. Simone Smith profile image91
      Simone Smithposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      We generally review them one-two days after they've been published, so I think the most up-to-date version of your Hub was reviewed big_smile

  15. Simone Smith profile image91
