Thanks to everybody who created and submitted posts, and congratulations to the winners!
Here are the rules:
– Bloggers may submit up to two posts: One of their own posts / One from any other ChicagoNow blog.
– The post must have been published during the month of June.
– We look at the quality of content, quality of writing, overall creativity, quality of headline and presentation.
