Calling all American Makers Answered

American Maker is an event sponsored by Make and Craft to showcase the work of people just likke you! It is scheduled to take place at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago on September 20th, 2008. The deadline to sign up is September 13th, so it is still not too late to sign up to present (but time is running out). Each Maker that signs up will get a chance to present in front of an audience and panel of judges. The Maker choosen at the end of the day to be best will win $500. Even if you have nothing currently to present, you should go an watch, because this sounds like it will be great fun.
