Introducing The CreateDebate Mental Stimulus Package

While lawmakers are figuring out how they can take more of taxpayer's money to give to Wall St. executives, CreateDebate wants to give YOU something free. That's why we're officially bailing out our awesome debaters via CreateDebate's Mental Stimulus Package. We will be running three different contests this month, with tons of awesome prizes courtesy of our good friends at Hachette Book Group and ClutchTees.com.

Contest #1- Love is in the Air (February 7th -14th)
With Valentine's Day coming up soon, CreateDebate would like to share a little love with everyone. We will be running 5 concurrent contests through Valentine's Day, and the winner of each contest will get one free copy of all 11 books below. Winners will be selected for each of the following:
  1. The creator of the debate with the highest "Debate Score" during the contest.
  2. The creator of the debate with the most "Debate Views" during the contest. Feel free to get creative in marketing your debate. Post it to Digg, email your friends and family, encourage your co-workers to use it, or any other crazy idea that you can come up with to drive traffic to your debate.
  3. Judge's choice for best debate during the contest.
  4. Top 2 users with most points during the contest.
Note: All debates must be tagged "VDayContest" in order to be eligible for the prizes. Debates do not have to be about Valentine's Day, but relevance will be a factor in the judge's choice contest.
