I want to thank everyone who submitted an entry for the Federated Search Blog contest. I also want to thank the judges who read each of the entries and assigned them scores. Prizes will be awarded to the people whose entries earned the three highest scores from the judges. I have contacted the winners so you know who you are! As soon as I get the OK from the Computers In Libraries Conference and Magazine managers I will announce the winners. I don’t want to steal their thunder since CIL Magazine will be publishing the winning essay in its entirety and CIL Conference will be having the first place winner on their panel.
