ActiveRain Contest Winners - May Brainstorming Challenge


Let your imagination be your guideThis month's ActiveRain 'brainstorming' challenge brought a lot of interesting commentary and some incredible ideas for our monthly challenges & contests. I'm not surprised at the level of creativity at all though - we have many talented members here in the Rain! Soak up other members' knowledge and participate in these contests & challenges - you'll be surprised at what you'll learn, not just by reading the entries but, by writing them yourself as well!


Thanks to everyone who participated - the entries were ALL excellent.


Which brings me to the incredible judges we had for this contest! What a tough job they had and by 6PM today (6/1), all of the judges had read every single entry and had voted and re-voted for finalists - IMPRESSIVE to say the least! If you've ever judged a contest, you can appreciate how impressive these judges were! Many thanks to Sally K. & David L. HansonJeff Dowler, CRS and Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS, Broker for their dedicated work to judge a very difficult contest and they did it in a timely fashion too. 



So, without further ado, here are our winners:

Fred Griffin
#1 - Fred Griffin - Concerning NAR, Fred asks members to go beyond the chatter, to make substantive suggestions for positive change within the Association. As this is front-burner dialog right now, we will be announcing this challenge early next week to run the month of June.


Lottie Kendall
#2 - Lottie Kendall - We ARE our own businesses and sometimes, just a little nudge like a contest to share what 'new' and fresh ideas we have implemented, sparks a light bulb moment for someone else. This challenge encourages us to not only share but, to look within our own businesses to evaluate what is working and, of course, what isn't!

Thomas Nelson


#3 - Thomas Nelson - We loved this entry - it's all about the riches in the niches and focusing on one. The premise - find your niche and get rich! This contest will spark some interesting thoughts, I'm sure!



We also have 3 honorable mentions as follows (did I say the judges had a heck of a time?!):


Scott Godzyk
Scott Godzyk
- A great challenge to write about your most challenging sale - oh, this will be a doozie! 


Sherry SperrySheri Sperry - A very futuristic challenge that should make for some interesting reading! I always enjoy the 'crystal ball' challenges and this one will really make you think!


Carol WilliamsCarol Williams - I absolutely love this one too - this challenge should have us all digging a little deeper about our legacy - a wonderful, introspective challenge.


Thank you all for your inspiring entries & congratulations to our winners! I will be reaching out to each of you in coming weeks to discuss your entries and putting them on the ActiveRain calendar.


Please remember to thank our fantastic judges - we appreciate all you do for the members in the Rain!
