In a recent post, I introduced my friend, Jenn Studebaker, and briefly told her story and implored everyone who came across my blog to take some time to learn more about her and to vote for her in a scholarship competition. The competition, sponsored by Democracy For America (DFA), would send the top five applicants to the 2013 Netroots Nation Convention, the largest progressive convention of the year.
I’m happy to report that, despite a late fade, Jenn was able to surge from 13th place to a very respectful 4th place finish. She received the call from DFA yesterday that she won the scholarship. Please join me in congratulating Jenn on the win, and wish her good luck and safe travels as she prepares to attend the convention in San Jose, California.
Special thanks to all who stopped by my blog, and extra thanks to those who took action and voted for Jenn.
