THE PLEDGE Street Teamers Killed It...

Let me just tell you that, wow, The Pledge Street Teamers pretty much blew me away with their enthusiasm and creativity! They enlisted their friends, family, adorable babies, and even a fabulous author (see below!) to help spread the word. There were tons of contests and giveaways for swag, and one street teamer even took her shiny copy of THE PLEDGE to a library that was...um...built in 117 A.D.!

Some of these projects included passing out hundreds of personalized THE PLEDGE candies, making 1000 bookmarks to distribute, photo shoots involving characters and scenes from the book with random readers, plastering hundreds of flyers around schools, and of course taking THE PLEDGE on a trans-continental trip (while still finding the time to spread the love all over NY!).

Of course, all of this means that choosing the Top Five was nearly impossible! So, I decided to put together a crack team of judges (my husband and ten-year-old included) to help make some very (and I’m mean very!) tough decisions. After some serious deliberating, we FINALLY narrowed it down to these five winners:

Karin (and Chelsea) Shearer
Cassidy (and Ally) Finn
Jennifer Sternberg (and the X-treme Readers)
Kristin Feliz
Ashly Ferguson

Here were just some of the pics they sent...























BUT!!! There were some Honorable Mentions, too:

Anna Pett
Amy Fournier
Supagurl (Heather)
Jaskirat
Rachel B.
Julie Wolfe
Lena Marsteller


Look...even Ally Condie got in on the action:



I’ll be contacting the Top Five winners so you can choose your prizes...and you Honorable Mentions can expect a little something too! ;)

Thanks again, Street Teamers!!! No matter what, I love you guys and totally appreciate your incredible support!!!

Thanks for the fun contest. It was cool how everyone had their own interpretation on spreading word about The Pledge.
