    Thanks for responding Marny,

    There was never any mention of an awards ceremony. This challenge has been going on for a very long time; and there have been several delays; the last communication stated that winners would be announed in "very early" December...which is now. There is still no announcement date; and it is not hard to plan for an awards ceremony; it should not take this long. Would you please just answer the questions we have been asking?

    "Have the winners been chosen by the judges?"

    "What date will the winner announcement be made?"

    Honesty...it sounds like the Knight Foundation and the FCC are intentionally delaying the winner announcement until next year. "This month" could mean December 31st; and meanwhile everyone that worked so hard for "months" on their App submissions are forced to wait and see what happens with no expectations to rely upon; such as a solid date that winners will be announced.

    There was "NO" plan to have an awards ceremony "EVER" mentioned before; so this really sounds like a made up excuse for yet another delay in this challenge. "NONE" of the participants in this challenge have been contacted about an awards ceremony.

    Planning an awards ceremony is easy; and should only take a few days...NOT WEEKS! All you need to do is make some phone calls, reserve a banquet hall, and hire a catering company.

    THE LACK OF TRANSPARENCY AND RELIABILITY OF THOSE MANAGING THIS CHALLENGE HAS BEEN EXTREMELY INCONSIDERATE!
