While we're working on coming up with the finalists, here are some other questions I want to get a reasonable consensus on:
1. The name. Suggested names include: "Apex Award", "Fan Award", "ICE Award", "Pyramid Pinnacle Prize".
I like "ICE Award" because it's short, and stands for "Icehouse Community Excellence Award"; but it has the disadvantage of referring to the term "Icehouse", while there has been a general trend to call the games "pyramid games" rather than "Icehouse games" -- Pink Treehouse doesn't use the term "Icehouse" except in the credits.
I like "Apex Award" because it's short, and "apex" is the correct term for the top of a pyramid, so the word has associations both with pyramids and with excellence.
Being short is a virtue because the name needs to fit into the small space in the Lab Report. In fact, Kristin may have already chosen and ordered the printing of the report; but in case she hasn't, what are your feelings? I'd be happy with "ICE" or "Apex", though I prefer the latter.
This is enough for this email. I'll ask the other questions in another one.
