Our Petri IT Hero contest has now moved into the final phase: Voting for the ultimate winner of the contest, who will go home with a shiny new Xbox One video game console just in time for the holidays.

And here’s the best part: The winner and the person that nominated them will both be awarded an Xbox One video game console ($400 value), while the 9 other finalists (and the people that nominated them) will also get a $50 Amazon gift card.
