We are releasing a gallery of grassroots healing efforts around the United States. Be sure to nominate one or more person(s) who are already SPARKS in the healing SPIRIT FIRE!
November 1, 2021
Nominations will be accepted as late as 12 midnight (Eastern Time) November 1, 2021.
Nominations have three categories:
If you think your nominee fits into a category, just submit the nomination. Don't worry about exact details. We have a big tent here. You are welcome to nominate multiple person(s).
First Step After Nomination
For online security purposes, we cannot sign the nominee up for the program. We will send you an invitation (immediately) for you to forward. There is a different invitation for each category. You can send that invitation to as many people or groups as you wish. After the nominee accepts and signs up, we will provide more information to them (but not you). Their sign up will not include a subscription to our broadcast because we do not assume everyone will want to follow us.
After a nominee accepts being nominated, we will send them an email requesting the following:
As soon as we receive those items from the nominee, Spirit Fire is obligated to confirm the topic and substance is suitable for public release. (Obscene or pornographic material will not be posted, nor will material which in Spirit Fire's sole judgment could be too emotionally triggering for others with post-traumatic stress issues.)
November 28, 2021
The work of nominated persons or groups may be posted online as soon as April 1, 2021. The final release of the full Spirit Fire Healing Hackathon* Gallery will be during our Thanksgiving Real-Time Marathon for Resilience on November 28, 2021. The full gallery will remain open to the public through the end of this broadcast, April 30, 2022. Visitors will have access to artists, for example, if they wish to commission fresh work separate of the event.
January 19, 2022
From the start of our Thanksgiving Real-Time Resilience Marathon on November 28, 2021, through midnight (Eastern Time) January 19, 2022, visitors to the gallery will be welcome to leave confidential comments for the nominees and to vote thumbs up/down on each nomination. Votes and comments are not public. Comments will be vetted by Spirit Fire which, in its sole discretion, will judge if the nominee will be edified by receiving them.
January 26, 2022
Awards will be announced on January 26, 2022 as follows:
$100 - First Place in each category
$50 - Second Place in each category
$10 Starbucks gift cards - Third place in each category.
Winners will be selected by a team of judges, who will review submissions blind (no names or locations provided). There will be six judges who confirm they do not recognize the works they see. Judges will not be prepared in any way by the broadcast host, Teresa Pitt Green, who will not be a judge. If a nominee accepts a nomination for any reason other than casual fun, such as for the money prize, please contact Teresa to explore finding financial relief sooner in other ways. Thanks!
