Hey guys, I saw this on Hack-A-Day and thought I'd share. Basically all you have to do is write an essay (1000 words or less) about a crappy product you've bought and hacked to make awesome. I guess a 50 word bio about yourself is also required. Contest entries have to be in by October 26th. Visit the link for all of the details and good luck.
EDIT: Upon reading the entry rules, it seems the contest is open to residents of the US, Puerto Rico, and Canada. If the winner is Canadian, however, they will be required to answer a time-limited math problem via phone call to claim the prize. What?!? No seriously, that's what it says. Wow.
