Got this news about the pet-friendly people and their second annual contest for Roommate of the Year!  Pets are roommates too!  Given the rich prize, I thought you might want to give it a try!  Grand Prize gets you the $10K and a year’s free rent!  The contest closes June 14 and as you would expect for such a prize, there’s a lot to read about, so this should get you started:

How to Enter 2010 Roommate of the Year Contest

Get out the video camera, get creative and get one step closer to winning free rent for a year plus $10,000 in cash and the coveted 2010 title of Roommate of the Year. Renters across the nation are invited to enter the Roommate of the Year Contest by submitting a video entry of two minutes or less to      

Entrants are challenged to showcase the specific attributes that qualify them to be Roommate of the Year by showcasing their inner roomie in one of the six contest categories. For detailed information on how to enter, including specific video instructions, an official entry form and contest rules, go to All entries must be received by noon EST on June 14, 2010.

Roommate of the Year Contest Categories Roommate of the Year Contest entrants should distinguish themselves from all of the other roommates around the country. Finding the category that best defines their special roommate skills is job one. [Sample] categories are:

 The Purr-fect Pet Owner—Pets are roommates too! This category is for roomies that go the distance to keep their four-legged companion happy with the games they play, the tricks they’ve taught them, or the all-you-can eat treat buffet.

 • The Environmentalist—Everyone knows about CFL light bulbs [wiki link mine] and fixing a leaky faucet, but what about washing out and reusing plastic baggies? This category is for the roommate who takes unique measures to make living green a priority.

 • The Grab Bag—Don’t want to commit to only one area of roommate greatness? This category is for people who possess special roommate qualities that don’t fit the other categories.

Renters’ entries will be judged with equal weight on (1) originality and creativity, (2) overall “wow” factor, (3) persuasive argument and (4) style and production.”
