Thanks to the generosity of Donald Taylor, a grad student at UIUC and an active member of their Academic Buzzer team, a 'second chance' drawing was held for all teams who had submitted applications for the December 2009 drawing and were not already selected to receive a buzzer grant. Two teams were selected to receive the grants of $200 each.
