Vote for Front Porch Forum 

Everyone's favorite neighborhood email newsletter service is up for an award — Burlington-based Front Porch Forum is one of 20 finalists for a Make It Your Own Award from the Case Foundation. The foundation is trying to encourage people to "come together to create a vision and work toward the common good."

You might have heard tireless FPF founder Michael Wood-Lewis talking about this on VPR the other day. Or you may have come across this video about FPF, produced by the local cable access channels.

If FPF wins, Wood-Lewis gets a $25,000 grant to spend on upgrading his neighbor-to-neighbor service. He's already getting 10 grand for being one of 5000 applicants to crack the top 20.

So who's choosing the winners? You are.

Go to the Case Foundation website and cast your vote for your four favorite projects. The top four vote getters get 25 grand. Do it soon — voting ends April 22. That's next Tuesday.

Click here if you're having trouble with the ballot.
