We are offering two prizes of 500 SP delegated for one whole month. That's 1000 SP in total. Prizes will be given to the two best reviews of product(s) purchased at Homesteaders Co-op. We hope this contest will encourage more folks to consider shopping at Homesteaders Co-op and supporting handmade, ethical vendors.

Thank you @pennsif for coming up with this contest AND generously offering 1000 SP in delegations!

Yes, you read that right. To enter this contest you need to make a purchase from Homesteaders Co-op. In order to give enough time for the order to be shipped, received and reviewed this contest will run until the end of the month.

Two winners will be chosen for best review in each category:

  • One prize will be awarded to best review of a product bought from a vendor in USA.
  • One prize will be awarded to best review of a product bought from a vendor anywhere else in the world.

Update: We have just extended the deadline to one month from this announcement to give room for shipping time.

500 SP will be delegated two each of the two winners for the month of February one month following this contest.

At the time of writing this we have 9 vendors in USA and 8 vendors in the rest of the world. Many of our vendors ship internationally. You may have to do a little digging to see which vendors ship where, but the information is not hard to find!

BONUS! 50 Steem Monster booster packs!

@yabapmatt just made a comment generously offering "50 Steem Monsters booster packs ($100 value) to this contest to be split among everyone who enters"! Thank you @yabapmatt for your contribution to this contest and helping us to get the word out about our new community marketplace

BONUS! 20 shares of Steem Basic Income (SBI)!

@nateonsteemit just donated 20 STEEM to go towards rewarding contest entrants with shares of SBI. The first 10 contest entries will receive 1 share of SBI each. The two winners of the contest will receive 5 shares of SBI each. @nateonsteemit has already transfered the 20 STEEM to our community account for safe keeping until it is rewarded.

To everyone that enters: I hope you have a lot of fun with this contest and pride in supporting your community!

Your delegations will help us grow our community and reward our members for their ethical choices and actions.

In our modern world it is not always easy to choose to live sustainably. To do so often means forgoing income potential and the status quo. Our SteemPower is used to up-vote Homesteader Co-op contributors and vendors in order to reward and support their hard work. Some extra STEEM may one day go a long way for some individuals of our community.
