    • Hi Adam,

      The committee is working on it. Once I take a nap after RhyPiBoMo, HA! we will get it up and running. Last year we accepted nominations from RhyPiBoMo Facebook Group members from about June – September. The committee voted in October and we named the winner in early December. This year’s schedule will be similar.
