Survey and Voting

Due to GoToWebinar® limitations for repeating webinars, we need to offer our post-show audience survey via Survey Monkey. We welcome both our live studio audience and replay viewers to complete this survey to vote and for a chance to win our $25 Amazon.com gift certificate drawing. For convenience, the survey is embedded below, at the bottom of this replay blog. After you complete the survey, it will close automatically. Only one entry per computer is allowed. Also, to minimize the "I'll just vote for my friend effect", we are now requiring that you must vote for TWO or more finalists. You can still vote for your friend, but be sure to cast a vote for at least one other good presentation!

DB2's GOT TALENT Finalists Compete!

22 March is our last finalist competition! We will have 5 presenters. According to your votes from this show, the Top 4 finalists receiving the most votes will be eligible for your votes on 22 March wherein we determine 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places. REGISTER if you haven't already!
