Hopefully everyone is reading (or at least skimming) through ALL 24 of these. There are some really great stories in here!
I vote for the fabulous Michelle Steven's #20 "Making an Impact" scholarship essay.
I give both my votes to #7 Sean Herron. He's a true ROCKet star. Working with Sean was a dream come true. I could toss an action to him without a single word of explanation and he would go off and figure out what needed to be done. All I had to do was look it over and stamp it: "Wonderful!" He deserves this scholarship. He worked for FREE for me at NASA, because I couldn't pay him. Then he continued to work for free for a couple of months after NASA promised to pay him for a different job. He cared THAT much about getting the job done.

Vote for Sean! Vote for Sean! Vote for Sean! Vote for Sean! Vote for Sean! Vote for Sean! Vote for Sean! Vote for Sean! Vote Vote for Sean! Vote for Sean! Vote for Sean! Vote for Sean! for Sean!

I vote for #7, Sean Herron. He has done an amazing job promoting government openness and transparency, particularly at NASA.
I vote for #7 and #15.
Have you read number 19?! That's my vote.
