Week 2 September 14, 2008 at 11:59 p.m. PT - SEE THE WINNERS
Week 3 September 21, 2008 at 11:59 p.m. PT - SEE THE WINNERS
Week 4 September 30, 2008 at 11:59 p.m. PT - SEE THE WINNERS

Here is the video we produced with the submissions, in order to raise diabetes awareness:

Each week, the four (4) best submissions each won one (1) OneTouch® UltraMini™ meter and two (2) boxes of one hundred (100) count test strips. The prizes were by LifeScan, Inc. for this contest but LifeScan, Inc. was not directly involved with the selection of winners or administration of the contest.

Some of the winners chose to donate their prize so that others who cannot afford test strips could benefit from it. Donated prizes were mailed to iPump.org, a non-profit that provides critical, temporary financial assistance and free supplies to diabetics in need of all ages throughout the United States.

I am a fifth grade teacher and within a few short years taught two sisters who live with diabetes with grace and positivity. They have a remarkable family who supports not only them, but also the diabetes community at large. I have three sisters I turn to for support in my life, who mean the world to me. In honor of my students, Ashley and Kelly, and my own sisters:
