I got this email today from Northfield High School world history teach Sam Wold:
I am trying to get the word out to vote for Northfield HS. Anybody can vote (student, teacher, parent, community member). If you could include a link or a post on your site that would be great!
Okay, Sam, I don’t watch TV news (I can’t stand the fluff. heh.) But I’m game.
The contest start page is here. Northfield has defeated Wayzata and Mpls-North and is currently competing against Coon Rapids in Round 3. Click on the ‘northfield’ link in the bracket takes you to this registration page where you’re required to hand over your name, zip, phone and birthdate. That made me a little nervous (will Fox 9 be spamming me?) but there’s a guarantee and an opt-out clause:
You will automatically receive e-mails such as contest picks confirmation and password retrieval messages as needed. If you would like to receive additional e-mail notification of new and upcoming contests on our website, please check ‘yes’. Your e-mail address will only be made available to this station and to the sponsor of the contest you are entering. It will not be sold or made available to any other companies or email lists! If you do not want to receive any e-mail notifications of future contests, check ‘no.’
I guess I can keep voting once every hour around the clock but I’m not sure when this round ends. Plus, I have naked sushi to attend to.
