Winner of caption contest
Judy van Aswegen and her contest prize

As you may remember, one of the rules of the photo caption contest was that the winner must send us a photo of the prize, the Wildfire Today ceramic mug, at their place of work. We are pleased that the winner, Judy van Aswegen, complied with the rules and sent us the above photo.

Here is what Judy does at her place of work, in her own words:

I am a self-employed software developer (, mostly concerned with systems analysis, information architecture, and user interface design. This led to my involvement with Firebreak Equipment (, and my ongoing interest in wildfire management. I marketed Firebreak Equipment’s Blackline Burner in North America. The FWS at the Huron WMD, SD conducted trials of the equipment in October 2007. (I recently received news that the Blackline Burner performed well putting down blacklines in the Bowdoin NWR, MN in April this year.

Congratulations again to Judy, and thanks for the great caption. And thanks to the other 56 people that submitted entries to the contest.
