The Tearjerker Award
The person who makes us cry the most (or at least feel a twinge of 1990s nostalgia) wins $250. This award is co-sponsored by Semantic Studios and the Good Olde Days.

The winner of The Tearjerker Award is Polar Bear SardinIA Edition by Gabriella Lussu.

The Miscellaneous Award
This award of $250 is sponsored by the IA Institute. Only contest entrants are eligible for this drawing. The winner may (or may not) apply their winnings towards eradication of the miscellaneous category.

We used a true randomness machine for this drawing. So, of course, the winner of The Miscellaneous Award is Samantha Bailey and her Coffee Cup.

Thanks to our sponsors and to all who played our game!
