I'm sending 2 people to Steemfest2 this year, one man and one woman. This contest is open to all minnows. My contest is titled, What's Your Vision To Change The World?

Here are the contest guidelines:

Here are the steps you need to take in order to enter the contest:

DEADLINE: JULY 27, 2017

Please make sure and use the tags: steemfeststella, minnowsupport, steemfest.

If you don't use the steemfeststella tag, I won't be able to find your entry.

If you know of a very deserving Steemian Minnow, feel free to list them in the comments.

So, there will be two categories: one for women, and one for men.If you are intersex or don't identify as either male or female, just choose one category arbitrarily. This is not meant to be exclusionary, on the contrary, it was meant to include everyone.

Thanks to @aggroed who subconsciously planted the idea in my mind to do this. I'll be getting some other judges to help make the decision for the winners.

Good luck!

Thanks for sharing! A link to your post was included in the Steem.center wiki page Steemfest 2:Crowdfunding and Contests. Thanks and good luck again!

I am very glad that someone in this life will be lucky and he will go TRIP TO STEEMFEST2. :-)

here's the updated info for this contest: https://steemit.com/steemfest/@stellabelle/win-a-trip-to-steemfest-submit-a-3-minute-video

New deadline is end of August, and I'm removing the one man, one woman requirement. Also, to enter all you have to do is make a 3 minute video...

I'm a brand new Steemian so I'm not sure yet about the jargon and whether that even makes me a minnow! However my first posts strangely enough concern my travels in Portugal, and now I've discovered SteemFest will be in Lisbon - karma? For the winners of your contest, or anyone else travelling to Lisbon, my posts might not be specific enough about the city, but they will provide some general information, for example about language or train travel, and who knows may encourage some SteemFest participants to travel to other parts of Portugal. Good luck with your contest and with SteemFest!

This is one of the best initiatives that i have ever encountered, reading the script even gave me goosebumps. I see your initiative @stellabelle as a motivation for people who motivates other people, God bless you but its rather unfortunate that we cant follow your criteria for some us to qualify for this trip but we will try and change the world as much as we can in our own simple way and i know that one day i would make enough to be able to qualify for these criteria

I am not here to enter the competition, but would love to see a winner who's life could be changed by this. Ideally someone who doesn't have the funds to go to Lisbon and by going now gets the change to learn how Steemit works and then will be able to grow a sustainable income on Steemit. Great initiative @stellabelle

This contest is open to all minnows

What is your current definition of "minnow"?

Is 1.000SP too much to be a minnow?
Or is it 10,000SP or any other number of Steem Powers?

·

I am not sure. If one believes that one is honestly a minnow, then that counts. What's the definition on steemwhales? maybe someone can help with defining minnowhood.

·
·

As I understand it, a minnow has more than 1 million vests but less than 10 million vests.

·
·
·

then i am a minnow!

·
·
·

What is the source of your understanding?

What is someone with less that 1 million vests, if it is not a minnow?

1 million vests is a little more than 2,000 SP.
Do you mean that anybody with less than 2,000 SP is not a minnow? Not in my book.

·
·
·
·

What is someone with less that 1 million vests, if it is not a minnow?

Plankton.

1 million vests is a little more than 2,000 SP.

Nope. A million vests is approximately 483 SP.

It's a powers of 10 thing:

Nope. A million vests is approximately 483 SP.

Yes, you are correct. For some reason I made an incorrect division (1,000,000 / 483.5).

So, minnow is between 1M and 10M vests and plankton is below 1M vests.

I doubt that @stellabelle wants to prevent people with less than 1M vest to participate in the contest.

Probably true. But it's of course up to her to decide on the parameters.

Thanks @preparedwombat, I learnt a new word today. I never knew I was a Plankton. I thought that if I ain't a whale or a dolphin then I must be a minnow. But whatever is the case none of us are either a man or a woman which is another condition to participate here. And why would all these fishes would like to travel that far in some small tank risking their life is beyond my understanding. 😅

·
·

I would recommend that we have more categories than just whale and minnow. I suggested maxnow but it sounds a bit weird. Maybe for now we can just go with your average value of your posts after about 5 hours: minnow less than 2 USD, small fish 2-7 USD, big fish 7-20 USD, baby whale20 - 50 USD, whale 50 USD and more

Very good idea...I like it

This is great! Glad to see it happening!!! RESTEEMED!

·

yes, you've ignited me! So thank you!

Great idea for 1 woman and 1 man going.. How about you choose once couple lol... Would be soo easy. . :D

All the best to all the participants..

Good luck to all that enters

You're always with some cool stuff helping the community :d

This is awesome! I've got my 4 & 1 year old boys on the case with me as they're the ones who will ultimately inherit the world we're trying to change. Thanks for your generosity! Steem on!

Wonderful! Good luck to all the contestants! :)

Wish you good luck to all! Great initiative!

OMG .. this is my chance .. Posting my entry soon .. Steemfest 2 here I come :)

Wow!! I am always amazed at how people are willing to help each other out on Steemit!
This is a super idea! I'm sure the two minnows who get to go are absolutely going to LOVE it!!
Thanks for caring for all us minnows all the time 😁

·

if you think about it, none of us would be doing so well without Steemit, so it just makes sense to help others.

·
·

True though...
Thanks for helping us all out though 😁
You need to post more often 😉

Great idea @stellabelle. I am happy for the winners to be!

@stellabelle That's great Idea i think i have to participate in this hope for the best keep posting following you to :)

@stellabelle great work !!

Wonderful! I like the contest.

Very cool offer. No way in heck I could win it with my skills but it will be fun to watch who does;-)

This is very kind of you, and hopefully we will see some excellent ideas!

stella you are very generous, this is great ^_^ I won't be entering for personal reasons but I like what you are doing

Wow, that's a very generous offer!

Resteeming this to my 10,000+ Minnow Army. :)

·

You mean all of your followers are Minnows? Hey, I'm honored to be a minnow and not a plankton. But am really confused about my identity ...only thing I know for sure is that I'm a Man and not a Woman. 😜

·
·

Not all of them are minnows, but most of them (or maybe most are Planktons...hmmm).

Some people aren't sure about their gender, so at least you got that one down. Lol. :)

·
·

What is a plankton in Steemit?

This is awesome @Stellabelle! Hope to see you in Lisbon!

Very nice of you.. I never win anything,hehe...@stellabelle cheers!

Nice ..pless vote me

Good luck to all who participate

Great post Stella , steemfest here we come!!!!

great idea!

I think Steemfest conflicts with work but I'll see if I can get a few days off during the event.
If I can get something done about it then I'll happily enter and make a post about it.
Thank You @stellabelle for giving everyone this opportunity.

This is so cool! I wouldn't be able to make it if I wanted too but this is such a generous contest reward for such a simple and easy contest to enter. Kudos

like the share looking into job issues and then will see.....

That's very generous of you and a great initiative. I'm sure the 2 winners will be really happy and I wish them all the best in advance :)

This world needs a lot of changing

I will definitely enter this contest. Expect my entry post soon.

I couldn't think of something else I rather not win. Nothing against steemfest. I simply just don't like people. Good luck to whoever wins this !!!

·

I simply just don't like people.

?

@emag and @teutorigos, maybe this is interesting for you. Unfortunately, I have a trip already booked during that time in Barcelona.

But i'm i a minnow? Close to 5000 steempower

I love that you guys are doing this stuff, I really want to be there with you world changers, Keep an eye out for my post xD

ohoho! this is heavy! :)

Don't know whether I'm a minnow or not but, the topics intrigue me.
So, I'm in. @stellabelle
Great initiative.

Thanks for sharing this great

Very nice! Very very nice! Good luck to everyone!

·

YEAH, IT'S GOOD TO GIVE THINGS AWAY...

I have a clear idea and plan, could participate with posts in Spanish or only if the English public would be valid, thanks for the support

Upvoted and Resteemed. But I don't think I'd participate here. Haven't got my passport made yet. 😠

Oh so nice, maybe i can have a chance her with my bad English xDDDD. Salutes Belle!

·

your English skill is not essential, only your vision, which is why i requested a video because i can sense someone's true intent in a video....

Stella, this is a good contest concept and while I don't intend to enter myself, I have to pose this question: what should one do if they are neither man nor woman? I know you of all people don't intend to exclude anyone intentionally, but for intersex people or people who don't identify with man/woman gender identity, this may unfortunately have the effect of exclusion.

·

i'll put a disclaimer on the post: if you don't identify with either, just pick one arbirtrarily....
It was meant to include everyone! So, good point....

·
·

Cool, I appreciate you coming up with a solution :)

·
·

Thanks that will help, because it is not that easy to identify yourself with different parameters of measurement.

That's great you are supporting this project - thanks for helping to make the community a better place. Cheers.

This is awesome! What a great opportunity for a couple people. Good luck entrants!

This line is fantastic

If you are intersex or don't identify as either male or female, just choose one category arbitrarily. This is not meant to be exclusionary, on the contrary, it was meant to include everyone.

We have come a long way in recognition and respect for diversity of sexuality. We are only beginning to recognise how marginalised some people live because of something so many of us take for granted. Gender. Great inclusion, a small gesture of validation. You rock.

Very cool of you.
It says it's on 1,2,3 with 4 and 5 in brackets, what does that mean , lol ?
I would love to go, Lisbon and Barcelona are my top 2 next to visit destinations, and I could maybe take advantage of this and join you guys, even though I am super new and unknown .
I will have to see how my business is going in the next 1-2 months and make up my mind by mid september . Do you think it will be too late? Is there a max nr of tickets for the fest?
Cheers ,
Motan

Way to go Stella! Good initiative! Cheers! :)

I wish I could go there... But that will cost too much... I will wait for the pictures... And hopefully someday the fest will be organised in India too... This is very good work you are doing ma'am to afford two people expanses... I missed the opportunity.. but someday I will.. :-)

I want to change the world. Here is how I will do it. Step one. Make a website. Name it Steemit. Tell people to go to Steemit. Make money. The end.

·

Brilliant...I hope nobody beats you to the punch ;)

Hah, ups. I honestly thought that the deadline was end of August.
I had the post in my open tabs until now and I was gonna start creating the content now :D.

Oh well, next year :).

Resteemed and posted in Discard groups.
Great contest and your contest thought is awesome as it contains social responsibility. It will make people to think about the world. I am expecting huge response
from steemians.

good idea :)
