Hey there, Zwinks!
Eeee! Can you feel the excitement in the air? The 2011 Prom King and Queen elections are nearly here! Talk about some royal awesomeness!
We’re kicking off this monumental event with the first ever Zwinky Prom Queen Preliminaries. Over 115 Zwinksters submitted eligible Prom Queen posters to my page. We divided the lovely lot into TWO groups, alphabetically ordered. Take a peek at the show above to see how nominees answered the question: “Why should my Zwinky be Prom Queen?” Then, vote for up to THREE candidates in our poll below!
Use the slideshow controls to pause, fast forward/reverse, or FULL SCREEN (um hello mind-boggling new feature!) the images. Take your time getting to know the Zwinks in the running!
But wait! The Preliminaries don’t end on this post! Make sure you head to our OTHER PROM QUEEN PRELIMINARY page to see the second batch of brilliant babes up for the crown. Cast your vote for your favorite THREE there too!
The Prom Queen Preliminaries close on Monday, May 16 at 9 am Eastern Time. The top 20 nominees with the most votes will go into the Prom Queen finals, alongside the Prom King poll. (Way fewer dudes coveted Kingship this year, so the Kings didn’t require a preliminary round.)
Thanks to everyone who submitted a prom campaign poster to my page. Unfortunately, we were unable to include all of the submissions because not everyone followed our guidelines. Folks confused by the chat bubble clause were given 1 chance to repost, as this was our first contest with a chat bubble element (and I’m a big ol’ softie as you know). But those who posted multiple times, after the deadline, or on the wrong page will have to try again next year. Now you’ve got plenty of time to work on that speech!
Lastly, we’ve been loving the comments you’ve been leaving on this blog. Who doesn’t <3 chatting up Zwinksters? Just please remember, any comments with inappropriate language or attacks on other Zwinkies will NOT be approved by our moderators.
Best of luck to everyone! Now…on to the votes!
