"Hi Jack - the project is excellent! Really love it. Unfortunately, I can not think of any contacts I have that could feed into it, but I am one of many at the Smithsonian. I might recommend that you post some info about it to the Smithsonian…"

Hey Darren,

Our Brainyflix video contest just ended, and I wanted to thank you for helping us get the word out. We got 800 submissions from across the country!

That said, MIT was really happy with the results and will let us run another contest, so we're going for it! But this time, we're gonna have kids create Brainypics flashcards - which are images and sentences paired up with a one of our SAT/ACT words. The contest ends May 22nd, and there'll be iTunes and a cash prize like last time. To boot, we'll double the payout if the kids can hit a certain goal. More details at brainyflix.com/main/contest_rules.

Do you mind posting on Facebook again?
