The 2010 DiabetesMine Design Challenge closes for entries at midnight tonight!  What? You didn't expect me to post about anything else today, did you?

I'm afraid I can't really think about anything else right about now.  Too excited to see what happens when the clock strikes twelve... So at the risk of sounding repetitive — in hopes of avoiding any submission snafus — here are once again those tips for successfully submitting your entry:

Don't forget to enter TWICE — that is, you'll need to BOTH fill out the entry form at the bottom of the page here, and also upload your actual entry at either the Scribd Group (for paper entries) or the YouTube Contest Group (for videos)

Don't forget to enter TWICE - that is, you'll need to BOTH fill out the entry form at the bottom of the page here, and also upload your actual entry at either the Scribd Group (for paper entries) or the YouTube Contest Group (for videos)

On the entry form - don't forget two vital things: a VALID EMAIL ADDRESS, and THE URL OF YOUR SUBMISSION, either at Scribd.com or YouTube.

For goodness' sake, please give your entry the NAME OF YOUR DESIGN CONCEPT. Any documents or videos simply titled "DiabetesMine Contest" will have to be disqualified, because it is impossible to sort or keep track of those.

A confirmation should pop up when you complete and submit the official entry form.

If you entered a Scribd document in particular, please click back on the Contest Group page ( http://www.scribd.com/group/84524-2010-diabetesmine-design-challenge ) to be sure your entry is not just on Scribd, but actually in the contest group.

Likewise, after uploading a video, please click back on our YouTube Contest Group page ( http://www.youtube.com/2010dbminechallenge ) to be sure that your video is actually included in the group.

On Monday we'll begin the process of reviewing entries, which will take a few weeks. So don't expect immediate feedback on your submission. But it WILL be reviewed, I assure you!

Best of luck to All, and thank you in advance for putting your creativity to work on the challenging task of improving life with diabetes.
