Astrobiology & the Sacred - contest results

Well, the results of the University of Arizona's Astrobiology and the Sacred National Poetry Competition are in:

First place: Colin Cheney of Brooklyn, NY won $1,000 plus an invitation, including travel and lodging to read at The University of Arizona in the Astrobiology and the Sacred Lecture Series, and publication in Isotope: A Journal of Literary Nature and Science Writing.

Second place: Nicky Beer of Columbia, MO won $500

Third place: Paul Longo of Tucson, AZ won $250

Over 400 poems were received in this competition, which means that there are a lot of people writing speculative poetry who are not members of the Science Fiction Poetry Association. Any idea how we reach these people? I wonder how many are students of the University of Arizona? Does anyone in the SFPA live close enough to distribute some flyers on campus?
