The Sam Adams Alliance is offering some large cash prizes for citizens who are leading the charge for liberty:
“The Sammies” include awards for citizen campaigns, creative events, blogging, and videos. The program seeks to publicize recent efforts that may not have received adequate attention, and to encourage more people to stand up for good government practices in their communities.
The contest categories include:
Videos: Produce one short documentary-style OR one short satire about local or state government issues: $5,000 cash prizes for each.
Best Local-Subject Blogger: Post regularly on a blog that covers local issues such as accountability, corruption, transparency, property rights, etc.: $5,000 cash prize.
Tea Party Award: Make a public political point just like Sam Adams at the Boston Tea Party: $5,000 cash prize.
Sunshine Award: Use open records laws to uncover government corruption and waste: $5,000 prize.
Modern-Day Sam Adams: Lead a local political effort and achieve a victory for liberty: $10,000 cash prize.
All submissions are due by December 7, 2007, and the winners will be showcased at an event in Chicago on December 17, 2007, where they will be presented with golden colored Sam Adams bobbleheads, or “Sammies.”
I can think of some local bloggers that might fit the bill.
