Have you ever heard that everyone in the world is connected to everyone else by just 6 points of contact? That is to say whoever you are if you thought long and hard you'd be able to come up with a chain of people no longer than six who would connect you to anyone else in the world. I don't know if it is true but it makes you think doesn't it?
It makes me think anyway. It makes me think that if this is even remotely true is will be very easy to find the 366 people needed to complete the February 29th Project. If everyone already involved tells someone about the project and they tell someone else pretty soon people all over the world will know about the project.
"but what's in it for me?" I hear you ask. "why should I go around telling people to write about their day?"
There will be two prizes given out at the end of the project. Smaller prizes will be given out on a monthly basis for truly deserving contestants.
PART 1- The League Table
Points will be awarded for various deeds which help the February 29th Project. The scoring system will be as follows:
15 points- Writing a February 29th Account Yourself
The results will be displayed in a league table each week. Proof will be needed before points are awarded. The winner will be the person with the most points by February 28th 2005.
PART 2- The Chain
The object of this is to form the longest and most well travelled chain of people who write for the project and each of you will win this competition. Each chain will be judged on February 28th 2005 according to the number of people involved and the approximate distance travelled since the beginning of the chain.
Prizes for both of these competition will be amazon gift vouchers and more importantly a friends of the heroes goody bag (containing undisclosed but very exciting prizes!) If you have already made efforts to help the project don't hesitate to get in touch and we'll keep records of you efforts! To enter please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
