It is now time to vote in Wolfram Alpha’s Deck the Halls with Facts and Knowledge Holiday Gift-Away, the competition announced by the Wolfram Alpha Team at the start of the month. You have until the 3rd of January 2011 to vote for your favorite entry in the competition. Don’t vote once and then forget about it! You can vote every day, once per day, until January 3rd and thus ensure your favorite entry has the best chances of winning.

“Contestants in Wolfram|Alpha’s Deck the Halls with Facts & Knowledge Holiday Gift-Away have been busy submitting their favorite Wolfram|Alpha fun facts, assembling their free Wolfram|Alpha Spikey paper sculpture kits, and snapping photos for the vote-off,” announced the Wolfram Alpha team. “Now you get to decide who will win! Now through January 3, 2011, you can vote once per day for your favorite entry.”


500 contestants are part of the Deck the Halls with Facts and Knowledge Holiday Gift-Away, a competition that goes something like this: the contestants submitted a fun fact (described as “unique Wolfram|Alpha result that has some cultural or scientific significance, one which you’ve likely never stumbled upon anywhere else on the web”) to Wolfram Alpha, got a paper Spikey sculpture kit, created their own Spikeys, took a photo with Spikey, and uploaded it to a Wolfram Alpha Photo gallery.

It is now time for all of you out there to cast your votes. Visit the gallery and cast your vote. What’s in it for you? By voting you could win a cool Wolfram Alpha T-shirt. “You could be one of the random lucky voters to win one of the newly inked Wolfram|Alpha Spikey T-shirts—not available anywhere else—in our daily drawings!” the Wolfram Alpha team explained.

What will the contestants win? Wolfram Alpha put up the following prixes:
Grand prize – Mathematica Professional, a piece of software valued at $2495.
Second prize – an iPad valued at $499.
Runner up prizes – Wolfram Alpha iPhone/iPod/iPad/Android apps, Wolfram Alpha t-shirts, and Wolfram Alpha laptop skins, $50 Wolfram Store credits.

The prizes will be divided among the 25 entries with the highest vote totals.
