Sorry, voting is now closed. The story with the most votes will be revealed Monday night at 6:30 p.m. ET on the CBS Evening News. And tune in to catch Steve Hartman's report on Friday.

Send Steve to meet a former prisoner who used his time in the slammer to learn - embroidery. Ray Materson says it did him so much good, he now wants the federal prison system to institute a sewing program.

Or meet an aspiring artist who got to visit Paris, France, through the Make-A-Wish foundation. She's a compassionate kid who's now auctioning off her paintings to pay for other kid's wishes.

If you thought spelling bees were reserved for the junior set, think again. Steve can introduce us to some participants in the AARP National Senior Spelling Bee.

Note: Please note that Anti Virus software installed on your computer can sometimes conflict with voting, to ensure a recorded vote you can temporarily disable your Anti Virus software. As always only your first vote counts.
