So How About That Northstar Team?

At the 12th Annual (has it been that long?) Final Four event last night, the team of Jeff Burke and Doug Weiss took home the Golden Pen Award for best proposal response for the Shoreview Library project. It was a well executed and smoothly delivered presentation that captured the attention of our 6 judges. Rounding out the top four teams to compete were Michelle Atkins/Gaian Carr-Manthe; Matt Lange/JebKimmes/Pat Buckner; and Luke Eichten/AndyHillestad/Stephen Warnke. Mr Warnke had to exit not 30 seconds after delivering his pitch to take his wife to the hospital to deliver their next of kin! Congratulations to all the participants, but I guess Steve gets the real prize!
