given campbell wallpaperI just received this email from Hatch pal Given Campbell. You may recall when we featured Given and her custom wallpaper awhile back – a lot of exciting things have happened for her since then. Right now, she is up for the Idea Wins mega prize. Show your support by voting for her here. Be warned, you have to go through a page or two promoting Microsoft software to get there, but the site design is pretty cool – I love the NYC skyline buildings that pop up and the entrance to the voting booth.

from Given herself:


I wanted to tell you about some really big news that is happening to
me. Last November I entered a contest being held by Microsoft to

promote their new Accounting software. Microsoft is looking for the
best small business idea in the USA and I have been selected as one
of 4 finalists. If I win, I receive 100,000 (USD) a retail space in
New York City plus the accounting software and support for the year.

The reason I am writing is to ask if you will vote for me to help me
win? The online voting is part of the overall decision and is taking
place now at

Also if you get the Today show on television you can watch the winner
being chosen live on air either on March 12 or 13…exact date to be
announced. I will let you know as soon as I know.

Cheers and thank you for your support.

    Hello all! Thanks for your support, it really means a lot to me. On the Today Show Tuesday they announced the winner, and although I did not win the Grand Prize I took home the First Prize which is an e-commerce live office website plus software and support for a year. Microsoft and Idea Wins will also be following me for the year to see how it all goes so stay tuned to my website or to keep track. I will let everyone know when my web store opens.

    Cheers from Tampa!
