Contest Prize Not Shipped? Answered

Hi there! I received a runner up prize notification 16 days ago that I had won an Arduino MKR 1000 for placing runner-up in the Arduino Contest 2016. I claimed my prize, and haven't heard anything about shipping or any other kind of confirmation yet. The other prize I won for coming in 2nd place on another contest notified me and shipped very soon after I accepted.

Can someone check to see if everything is ok?

Attached is a screenshot of the winning prize message I was sent (and accepted).
