2010 Feste Award Nominations Open!



February 01, 2011 – Comments (3)

Recommendations: 0 Fools,

It's that Fest'e'ive time once again. For those of you who don't know what the Feste Award is, check out the links at the bottom for a description and previous year's "Feste"ivities.

The winning Fool will receive an All Access Pass to all of our premium content! That includes everything on this page, and much more!

As always, we'd like to bestow The Feste Award on one member of the community who best exemplifies our mission of Learning Together:

Because this is a community award, the nominations for this award should bubble up from within. We'd like to use this discussion board to accept your nominations for The Feste Award. In order to nominate someone, you must include the following:

- member name
- a few paragraphs detailing why this person deserves the award
- links to 3 posts from 2009 that exemplify this person's dedication to the community and to Learning Together.

We'll accept submissions through February 28, review them internally, and whittle the list down to 10 candidates. From there, we'll let the community vote to determine the winner of the tenth annual Feste Award!

A few points to mention:

- this isn't a lifetime achievement award. The winner should be chosen based on contributions from 2010 only.

- you must list 3 posts (boards or CAPS blog) from 2010 that exemplify the person's Feste deserving contributions or your nomination will not be considered.

- you must write a few lines about why this person is deserving or your nomination will not be considered.

- the more thoughtful your nomination, the more likely we'll give your candidate serious consideration.

- Past winners are exempt from this year's balloting and simply take their rightful places in the pantheon of community Fools. Past nominees who didn't win may be nominated again.

- TMF staff, despite how much you may love them are not eligible, though I'm sure they'd still love it if you sang their praises.

We always enjoy doing this and hope you do as well. Have fun!

Perhaps the 'best call of 2010', and a real caps community player.

Yeah, i think that's my vote.

I nominate outoffocus. Besides having a sense of humor which is essential to maintaining sanity in investing, outoffocus exemplifies what I would look for in an investor, powers of observation, common sense, ethics, and skill at applying knowledge.  She shares what she knows to help others. I think Motley Fool, outoffocus comes in focus for me.
