2011 Feste Award Nominations Open!



February 13, 2012 – Comments (2)


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 2011 that exemplify this person's dedication to the community and to Learning Together.

We'll accept submissions through March 14, 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 eleventh annual Feste Award!

A few points to mention:

- this isn't a lifetime achievement award. The winner should be chosen based on contributions from 2011 only.

- you must list 3 posts (boards or CAPS blog)from 2011 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!

I nominate lemoneater for the 2011 Feste award. 

The standard is ‘best exemplifies our mission of Learning Together.’  In order for us to ‘Learn Together,’ we need questions and discussions geared towards addressing real-world investing / finance situations we all experience.  I can’t think of anyone in the community who does that better than lemoneater.  She brings a talent for posting questions that stimulate really good discussions and bring out a variety of viewpoints and thoughts to our community.


Choosing a mutual fund.

Foreign currency exposure and the difference between foreign equities and currency trading.

A search for ‘high’ interest, FDIC insured savings.

Even when sharing a challenging personal situation, lemoneater managed to toss in a stock question while reminding all of us that money isn’t the most important thing in life.

There are several Fools posting in CAPS or on the boards that contribute to the community and are worthy of the award.  But, I can’t think of anyone more deserving than lemoneater.
