With my mentor hat on, I don't think it's appropriate to hold a vote
here for that.

Apache projects don't have leaders who have more powers than others -
by design.

If external entities want to reward people for their work on Apache
Flex that's cool, but that should happen outside of this project.
Ideally (IMO) there would be just one message on this list to announce
such contests, and the rest happens elsewhere.

I'm trying to say that without being negative about this particular
contest, please don't get me wrong: it's great that folks want to help
promote Flex in this way, we just have to be careful about Apache Flex
staying neutral w.r.t such things.
