Over $5,000 in Prizes in All 3 Categories!

I want to sincerely thank all of you who participated in the Axtell Puppet Video Challenge. This was an amazing experience for me, the top notch judges and each contestant. We learned how to run a great contest, how to make it better, how to use Youtube, how to score, and how to make killer videos with our Axtell puppets!  

While I was not involved in the judging, I want to congratulate all of you for a job well done!  

If you did not win this time, ..make it a learning experience.  Become better!  Work harder!  Be determined and never, ever, EVER give up!   

We will be doing this again!  

Your rock!   Steve Axtell
