Inspiring Americans - Your Vote by June 15

The Smithsonian is looking for Inspiring Americans - and your vote counts! Here's your chance to share your thoughts with the Smithsonian, nominate your favorite historical or contemporary quilter, your quilting teacher, your mentor, or any person who motivated you to do better!

Below are the quick contest rules from the Smithsonian web site:
  • Tell us who inspires you and why in 250 words or less.
  • Send in your entry before the Friday, June 15th noon EST deadline.
  • A panel of Smithsonian judges will pick the top five finalists with the
    most inspiring stories.
  • We'll post the five finalists' stories on our Contest voting page where YOU
    can vote to decide the winner from June 22 – 28th.
  • We'll announce the winner on June 29th and feature him or her in the July
    issue of Smithsonian Focus.
You can also sign up for the FREE, Smithsonian monthly e-newsletter, Smithsonian Focus, to learn about exhibits and events at the Smithsonian here in Washington DC or in one of the 146 affiliate museums. Thank you Vanessa Harbin, Smithsonian Focus Editor for letting us know about the contest!
