This summer Chicago Museum of Science and Industry solicited entries from people that would be willing to join the Museum as a full time live in experiment. Over 1,500 people applied to become human lab rats, including one of our own JR members. After an interview process the field has been limited to 5 finalist and one of those finalist is our own Krispijn Larrison. This moves Krispijin just one step from an experience of a lifetime . Please help a fellow JR members: Visit http://www.msichicago.org/matm/finalists/krispijn-larrison and cast your vote. NOTE: You can vote once every 12 hours between Sept. 27 and Oct. 4.
Here is Krispijn’s full plea for YOUR help:
As some of you may know, a couple months ago I entered Month at the Museum, a contest to live inside the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry for 30 days. After a crazy interview and selection process, I am proud (and screamingly excited) to announce that, out of over 1,500 applicants, I am officially ONE STEP AWAY from winning!!! This is it. This is big. And now, I call upon you for your help.
From Monday, September 27 through Monday, October 4, the public will get to vote for their favorite Month at the Museum finalist. The voting process will last seven days, and each of you will get a chance to vote once every 12 hours. That’s 14 chances to vote over the next week!
Here’s where to vote: http://www.msichicago.org/matm/finalists/krispijn-larrison/
In addition to voting, if you think I should be the one chosen for this amazing job, please join the effort to get the word out about the contest and the voting process. How? Facebook! Twitter! Myspace? Your awesome blog(s)! Email! Texting! Door-to-door canvasing! Putting up posters and passing out flyers! (I’m actually serious about the last one — see attached files!) Tell your communities, your church groups, your makerspaces, your schools, and of course, your friends and family.
Here’s a social media post-sized blurb that you can copy and paste:
“VOTE FOR KRISPIJN FOR MONTH AT THE MUSEUM! How could he *not* be the best roommate for the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago? His passion for exploring, discovering, and teaching others are just a few of the many reasons why he’s perfect for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Visit http://www.msichicago.org/matm/finalists/krispijn-larrison and cast your vote every 12 hours between Sept. 27 and Oct. 4 to make him the winner!”
And for the Tweeters:

Thank you for your support! This is something I’ve worked very hard for. It has the potential to change my life in ways that I can barely imagine. I have learned a great deal about myself throughout this process, but there’s even more to be learned by taking this opportunity as far as it can go. Let’s make this happen!
