It’s time to wrap up last year’s 350 Blocks Project.
This is always the most exciting post of the year for me, because I get to see a recap of what we accomplished as a group, and announce the prize winners!
Here’s our statistics from last year . . .
I’ve put an updated infographic on the Project Page, so you can see the year-by-year comparisons. I’ve also updated our final totals by person, and I’ll leave those up until the 15th, so everyone has a chance to look at it if they wish.
Every year, I debate with myself if I should continue this, but this year, there was no hesitation. We’re doing this again, and I hope you’ll all join me. And tell your friends, so they can join, too! What’s to lose? There are lots of prizes along the way!
But before we kick off the 2021 350 Blocks Project, I need to announce the rest of this year’s prizes . . .
Our December monthly prize winner is Katie Z., who made 1431 blocks this year! That really helped with our grand total, for sure!
For the Project as a whole, there’s a Grand Prize package, and three other prize packages. I usually gather up goodies all year and combine them with online gift certificates, but this year, I didn’t go anywhere to gather any goodies, and since we’ve all been trying to stay home more, I decided this was a good year to do all gift certificates. So here’s the breakdown:
The Grand Prize package is a $100 gift certificate, and the other three are $50 each. Besides, this way the winners can buy exactly what they want, instead of me picking something for them that they might not like.
The Grand Prize winner is drawn from among all the participants who made it past the 350 blocks goal. The other prize winners are drawn at random from among all the active participants, regardless of how many blocks you made, and it also doesn’t matter if you’ve already won a monthly prize — your name gets thrown back in for the grand prizes. The only rule is that you must have reported in at least 6 times throughout the year to be considered an active participant, even if you reported in late, and even if you reported a ZERO for the month.
So here we go . . . The Grand Prize winner is:
Shirley Brown (385 blocks)
The other three prize winners, in no particular order, are:
Fran (1546 blocks)
Diana S. (391 blocks)
KT (361 blocks)
Congratulations to all the winners, and as always, thank you ALL so very much for joining in and playing along with the Project this year. I appreciate all of you taking the time and making the effort to participate.
We’ll kick off the 2021 350 Blocks Project on the 15th. The rules are still gonna be the same as last year — it’s still easy, free, and has prizes! So be sure and check back in to get signed up!
