My, we’re getting down to the wire here, aren’t we?
There’s not much time left at all for you to get your badge claims in. I’d only give you about a week or so left.
So where are we in the standings? Well, there are now a whopping 11 people in the Four-Digit Club, three more than before. Welcome, welcome, to @sydney , @ashura0 , and @liberrygirl for cresting the thousand-points mark. I see @wrinkles521 as being very, very close to joining up. One more badge before the end will put you there!
Speaking of The End, if you think you’re safe for getting into the drawing where you are now, think again. In the last two weeks, the target for getting into the drawing has jumped up to 635 points, which put some people who were working hard at the beginning and have fallen off the pace a bit completely out of the running. There are also some who have come late to the program but are quickly building up enough points that they might make it in, and in doing so, will push the threshold for points yet higher still.
If I were to speculate, I’d say that the line to beat at the actual end of the program will start with the digit 7, in the flurry of last-minute claims and badges awarded in a last-ditch effort to get into spot #30 for the drawing.
Thanks again for your participation in the Teen Summer Challenge – your activity and playing along with us makes it ever-increasingly likely that we’ll be able to do this again next year, at the very least. There’s still about a week left – get on those badges!
