UPDATE: The photo submission form has been turned on… and the contest has been extended until Thursday, March 12 @ 5 p.m.

Many of you who stopped by our booth at TechMixer last night were asked to take home orange signs – and we wouldn’t tell you why…

Well, now we are.

We want you to show us what Birmingham means to you! The one that we think is the best gets a $50 gas card! I thought you’d like that…

The rules after the jump.

Here they are:

Take the sign and find a person, place or thing that means Birmingham to you. Either place the sign on or hold the sign in front of the location.

Take a picture of the sign and the item & send it in using the submission form that will be turned on starting at 11:30 a.m. todayYou’ll have a chance to explain why you chose the person, place or thing that you did. We’ll have a version of the sign available for download by 2 p.m. today if you’re interested in participating and weren’t able to come out last night. We’ll also be at okafés! today until 11:30 and again later this afternoon if you want to grab one from us…

Check out the photos on the site starting on Sunday afternoon. We’ll let you know how you can get in on the selection process then. We’ll be accepting submissions until Friday evening, 2.27.2009, at 6 p.m. We’ll announce the winner on March 2.

After you’ve taken your photo and submitted, if you don’t want to keep the really cool sign, we’d ask you to hang it up at a local business to help spread the word about Birmingham’s hub.

Good luck!
