Gene Ambaum Award

Gene wanted to specially honor the entry that most reflected what he would have done in this contest. And so it is with great pride that we share with you:

Invisible Cart from the Richland Public Library in Richland, WA

The prize is, of course, invisible too.

All the entries we received showed a lot of hard work and originality and we loved looking at them all. Thanks to everyone who tried.

Keep on Pimpin',
Bill and Gene,
the Unshelved guys

P.S. Will we do it again next year? You bet we will.
