TBD Contest: Week 2

Dear readergirlz, the time has come for a contest! Actually, it's the second week of five weeks of contests!

The winner of last week's contest is... Polo Pony! Send your address to readergirlz AT gmail DOT com and we'll get your pack of books out to you!

Here's the deal: each week from now until Support Teen Literature Day on April 16th, we'll be awarding *a package of books* to one winner. To enter, you just comment on our blog posts (comments on older posts count - a point for each comment!) and get an extra ten points for taking up the week's challenge. Get ten more any time by becoming one of our blog followers!

Report your post in the comments with the URL (and get eleven points!). We'll keep track of the comments and urls and award the winners each week. Books! Prizes! And you'll be supporting teen lit and hospitalized teens across the country.

This week's challenge: Post the press release on your blog (here it is on ours!). Spread the word about Operation TBD!

And if you haven't posted the Operation TBD trailer on your blog, do that for more points and let us know!

Congrats, Polo Pony!

There is a link in my sidebar from last week and I posted the trailer as well. Do we need to repost the trailer for points this week?

Do you we need to post url for each comment we make?


Melissa Walker said...

No URLs necessary for comments, just for where you post this week's challenge, so leave a URL in the comments if you're posting the Press Release. Thanks!

Very nice press release! Posted!

Are we only supposed to mention once if we became a follower? My kidlings are on Spring Break this week and my brain has decided to go on holiday, too. *sigh*

I followed under the name Melissa. :D I just saw the video and *love* it. This maybe a stupid question can I ask the song in the video? I *really* like it. :D
