Weekend Genius Challenge #13 Winner!

In our Nifty, Nifty, Look Who's Fifty contest, we asked readers to come up with the best 50th anniversary event that will occur in 2008. There were several great entries, but the one that struck us most was Grace's early comment:

1958: Peace symbol designed and completed by Gerald Holtom, commissioned by Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, in protest against the Atomic Weapons Research Establishment.

All current politics aside, peace is certainly something that this world needs. Here's some interesting background on the development of the symbol and the history of other peace-related signs.

Grace, we'll be in touch to send you your T-shirt prize. Congratulations! And thanks to all who participated!
