Contest Update: Today, September 30th, 2009 the Quark Expeditions Antarctica contest officially ended. I finished in 5th place out of over 700 contestants. Unfortunately I will not be going to Antarctica since only the 1rst place contestant wins the free adventure. I will however keep pursuing my dream and one day WILL make it to the frozen continent !!
I would like to thank everyone for their tremendous help getting the word out about the contest. I had over 1,270 people vote for me and I am greatly appreciative to each and every one one of you. There are many others who went over and above simply voting and campaigned for me to get multiple votes from their friends and contacts. There are too many of you to name and I don't want to forget to list anyone so let me just say I will always remember your generosity. Thanks !
Congratulations to Luis Monteiro from Portugal who won this dream adventure !! Final Results Here
