    We will have a drawing for some technology prizes at the wrap-up session. Prizes for the drawing were donated by the Indiana Staples store and by Affordable Interiors. You will receive a ticket at the end of each session that you attend throughout the day, and you must be present at the wrap-up session to win.

    Just before the drawing, you will have an opportunity to drop your tickets into boxes for the various prizes (you can put all of your tickets into one prize box to increase your odds of winning, or spread them out through several prizes).
