I love contests, especially when the prizes rock! The Silverlight Show web site is hosting a great contest where you can use your Silverlight skills and win some great prizes that including passes to MIX! Here are the details for the prizes that I pulled from their web site:

Our Grand Prize winner will receive a trip to MIX10 event in Las Vegas (MIX10 pass, 3-night hotel stay at Mandalay Bay Hotel and 1,000 USD for travel expenses included), and Telerik Premium Collection for .NET! Two more MIX10 passes and more awards from Telerik await the first runner-up, and the Community Choice winner! Read more on the prizes.

How do I Win?

The contest asks participants to create a Silverlight application that helps support any kind of eco friendly activity. I copied this from the contest rules section of the web site:
