The Oscars, the Emmys and the Grammys and now ... the "Lulus"

Grab your pocket protector and put on your favorite "Born to Code" t-shirt! Lulu Tech Circus, the 3-day interactive technology experience sponsored by Bob Young's Lulu Enterprises, today announces the "Lulus."
The Lulus celebrate important geek characteristics and signifiers of supreme geekdom such as: Retentiveness, appearance and hygiene, social/asocial activities and habits, arrogance, skepticism, criticality and the rest of the standard and extraordinary measures of geekdom as best personified by an individual.

To be a part of the world's first Lulus, go to right now and nominate your favorite Lulu, which may very well be yourself!

The Lulus will be awarded at the Raleigh Lulu Tech Circus, which runs from September 27-29, at the North Carolina fairgrounds. Look for the Lulus to be handed out September 27 at 5pm in a ceremony that dares to ask, "Are you Lulu enough"? You must be present at the Lulus ceremony at the show to win your Lulu.

Lulus will be given to Raleigh's top three entrants. There is no cost to enter the contest, and nominees must be at least 18. Did we mention that you must be present to win? Well you must!
