Congratulations to the winners, and to everyone who played this month - you all did great! And thanks to all of you who took the time to vote!
So I am curious - if it may be known - on average how many votes does it take to win the 1st place spot in the challenge.? is there any reason we cannot see how many votes we get for transparency sake at least?
When we first started the Challenge 19 years ago we decided that vote totals wouldn't be revealed. It didn't serve a purpose as the level of each contest participation is different, and we felt it might discourage some of the novice contestants, and we didn't want to do that. The Challenge was designed as a "people's choice" contest and with everyone on equal footing.
So, to be as transparent as I can, the first place winner is the one with the most votes for that month!
