    Not sure what happened. The virtual event did take place. Got an email that said they needed another week to announce award winners, but had a date that was 2 days later. It said they would be announced on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. A month later, nothing. Sent email to see if they were posted anywhere else and never got a response. Looked at website and there's no updates. Wonder if they shut down... Sad because I was really excited about this event.
