logo pretty-ugly-challengeThank you!

Thank you so much to all who participated in the contest sharing your success/failure sagas with the rest of us!

We can all undertand to some degree the frustration and disappointment of lost equipment, time, labor, expense, profit, etc. And, can really identify with each other as human beings who face huge obstacles and live through them. It's those human innovation and adaptation stories that we need to share and can all learn from – which include providing a bit of comfort for the pain we all encounter in our own lives. Thanks again for sharing!

Just know, it was very hard for us to make the final desicion for the Pretty Ugly Challenge this year. All the entries we received were so good! (Well, in this case, BAD... haha!!) However, we stuck to our original theme - "an ugly machine that produced a pretty floor."

Hope to see your horrible entry next time!

The STI Team
