The next 10 eligible entrants with the highest number of points achieved will each be receiving a second place prize of a NephMadness coffee mug.

In addition to prizes for the participants with the top bracket scores, the NephMadness team feels that tournament is about community and wanted to show our appreciation of the community efforts. We appreciate everyone who participated in NephMadness through blogging, tweeting, and other social media, but wanted to especially highlight a Best Blogger and Best Tweeter, not associated with the contest, and award each with a NephMadness coffee mug. The Best Blogger and Best Tweeter for NephMadness 2014 were judged on a secret mixture of quality and quantity.

Best Blogger
Andrew Malone

Best Tweeter
Michael Katz
