Announcing the winners of the SolidWorks World 2010 First-Timer Contest

Yes, you read that right. When we sat down to review the entries, there were two that really stood out. We had such a hard time deciding between the two that we just decided to make them both winners. Before we tell you who they are, we want to thank everyone who entered, and hope we still see you at SolidWorks World 2010.

We are happy to announce that the winners of the SolidWorks World 2010 First-Timer contest are Boaz Axelrad for his story of how he got fired for trying to introduce SolidWorks in a previous position, and Terri Mertens for her story of making the leap from laid-off designer to SolidWorks freelancer.

Again, thanks to everyone who entered. And you never know…there may be yet another chance to win a conference pass. Keep checking back!
