And the winners are...

I know, I know, you're dying to hear who the winners are.  If you're one of them, we'll be contacting you shortly!  :)  In the meantime, I am posting a list of the winners below.  Before that, however, I posting some screenshots of the randomization program that I used.  We had planned to use random.org or randompicker.com, but both required a fee ($35 and $25, respectively) due to the number of entries we had.  Randomizer.com allowed us to randomize the entries without a fee.

We had 1298 entries, and Randomizer chose numbers for each of the prizes.  There were 34 non-local prizes, so we had the program choose 60 numbers to allow for the possibility that more than one of the same person's numbers might be chosen.  In the event that a person had already won a prize, we simply moved to the next number in line.  I am not posting screenshots of the numbers, but if anyone would like copies, I will email you one.

All 1298 entrants were in the running for the nonlocal prizes.  After winners were identified for those prizes, we did a second drawing for the five local-only prizes, using only local names who had not already won a prize.  There were 175 local entries (who had not already won prizes).


And here is the list of winners!  The numbers you see correspond to the Randomizer-selected numbers.
