Prizes - An unspecified grand prize, $300 first prize, $200 second prize, and $100 third prize in each category.  The link is here, look in their right sidebar for the contest.

And finally, here's an easy one. Red Heart is having a Retweet contest for June 2011. No original design required, just retweet their post and earn an entry for a chance to win some of their new Red Heart yarn.
