Help Blackfive Win a Scholarship has a $10,000 scholarship for bloggers that are also full-time students. There are 20 finalists, and for whatever odd reason, they've decided to let voters decide who should win.

Frankly, I don't know 19 of them and they may very well be nice people, but the 20th I do know, and I think that he deserves your vote. His name is Matthew Burden, but you'd probably more familiar with him if I simply called him Blackfive.

So, like, go vote.

I'm surprised there are only 1,300 or so votes for him so far. I guess people haven't woken up yet.

Anyone know who Shelly Batts or Kimberly Klein are? They seem to have a lot of support - or loyal botnets or something.

Ah, never mind, I actually clicked on some links... law student and a neuroscience candidate? Yikes...

I've gone there twice, on two different browsers. I even asked my computer programming husband for help. Exactly how do you vote for Matt? Is there a specific browser that lets you vote? Is there a page I am missing?

Suzy, if you see the vote results then someone on that computer has already voted... or so the theory goes, anyway.
