Announcing the Plutus 2014 Finalists

Plutus Awards Finalists

After tabulating the nominations, and after using the Blogger Panel to break ties and discuss other issues, we have our finalists!

The Fifth Annual Plutus Awards will be presented on Saturday, September 20, 2014 in a ceremony sponsored by USAA.  Winners will be awarded bags, sponsored by Scottrade, filled with goodies. After, we plan to have a Happy Hour, sponsored by Experian, at the hotel.

We also want to give a shout-out to our Digital Media sponsor, Fidelity, for supporting this great site re-design.

Also, don’t forget that we are still accepting votes for the People’s Choice Awards. Vote soon, people, because this one is up for anyone until September 17, 2014, at 11:59 p.m.

If you’re named below as a finalist, congratulations! Please feel free to display this badge on your website to let your readers know you’ve been selected for acknowledgment by your peers.

And now, without further ado, here are this year’s Plutus Awards finalists.
