Do you have reviews of products to offer or information of interest to the MDC community to place as a wiki? We need your help! We want our Product Reviews and Wikis to be vibrant resources for the community, and invite you to get the ball rolling. The more reviews and wikis you create, the greater your chance of winning our BIG prizes. Check out the wonderful items you can win just for taking part!

The Grand Prize? This fabulous playhouse, generously presented by:




This Grand Prize will be awarded to the participant with the most points earned during the contest (see details below). Inspired by simplicity and integration with nature the Wedge House is a modern beauty for your home. With a small footprint and large impact this house will transition from a pillow strewn pre-walkers delight to a creative haven for your toddler and school aged child. Safe, non-toxic, and durable design handmade in the USA with certified sustainably sourced maple apple-ply and domestic lumber. $1099 value. Find all of the specifications here.

For our second and third place point earners we have a stylish and comfortable Cybex Onyx Stroller and this gorgeous Cybex Go Baby Carrier

The top 50 runners-up will receive a Mothering Calendar, this cute little Bamboo Shaker Rattle from Dandelion, and a HABA Kringelring Wooden Teething Ring from Julabug.
    Kringelring    Kringelring

And finally, all other participants will receive a copy of A Quiet Place book, containing 37 profound and moving essays on life and family, by Mothering Publisher and Editor Peggy O'Mara. 
You may place Reviews or Wikis, or both!
Contest limited to US residents. Prizes will be awarded based on the total accumulation of points by the contest end date (Tuesday, Feb 22nd at 11pm ET). See prizes above. Only one item is available for each of our three main prizes (playhouse, stroller, and baby carrier). A tie, if any, will be decided randomly and fairly by MDC. Although MDC will do its best to be accurate, any point disputes will be settled at the discretion of our staff. Please do not request point totals during the competition for yourself or other participants, winning point numbers will be announced on Fri, February 25th.
Head over to the Reviews section of the website and pick a product you want to review.
Each complete product placement and review will be worth 10 points as follows:
New Product Placement:
1. Select Category (1 point for proper placement)
2. Place Manufacturer name (1 point), Display Name (1 point), Image (1 point), Description (1 point)
3. Details (optional), Link to product (1 point), Finish
Adding a Review
1. Title of Review (1 point)
2. Pros & Cons (1 point)
3. Rating, date purchased, price paid (1 point)
4. Full Review text - 4-5 sentences describing ease of use, satisfaction with product, durability,etc (1 point)
Total for all above actions: 10 points
All reviews should be checked for spelling. Partial reviews will be scored.
Head over to the Wiki section and create a *new* wiki.
Wikis should be helpful, information rich or detailed how-tos. Our Wiki Tutorial is a great place to start!
Wikis can be awarded one of two point values:
A longer, detailed wiki with supporting links and images is worth 5 points.
A short informational wiki is worth 2 points.
Please remember the contest is only for *new* wikis. Points will not be given for editing an existing wiki. All Wiki content must be original content you created, not information belonging to anyone else. Please do not copy and paste others' work to create a wiki and please get permission to use any copyrighted images you place in your wiki. All wikis should be spell-checked. 
The cumulative point totals (for both Reviews and Wikis) will determine the winners.
All reviews must conform to our Review Guidelines and our Wiki Guidelines. Please read these articles prior to participating.
Judges may disqualify an entry if it fails to meet the minimum requirements, or violates the User Agreement or guidelines.
The contest will begin Tuesday, February 8th and run for two weeks through Tuesday, February 22nd at 11pm ET. At the end of two weeks results will be tallied, and winners will be announced on MDC on Friday, February 25th.
To enter, simply start creating reviews and wikis! At the conclusion of the contest we'll announce the winners on MDC and contact you via email with the necessary details to deliver your prize to you. Please make sure the email you used for registration on MDC is current and correct as that is the address we will use to contact you.
Good luck!
