winnerCongratulations to the winners of the Fourth Annual Plutus Awards!

Last night at the Financial Blogger Conference in St. Louis, Missouri, the Plutus Awards recognized excellence in the personal finance blogging community with an awards ceremony hosted by Kevin McKee of Reward Boost. Special guests presented winners in attendance with trophies, certificates, and prize bags from sponsors. The entertainment for the night was made possible by Fourth Annual Plutus Awards sponsor, Fidelity Investments. The prize bags were made possible by sponsor State Farm, as well as by many other FinCon and Plutus Awards sponsors.

To determine the finalists in each categories, the Plutus Awards blogger panel accepted nominations from the public. The nominations were tallied by the panel and the finalists in each category were chosen from among the nominees. The panel then had the ultimate decision in choosing the winner from among the finalists in each category.

Bloggers who would like to share their selection as a winner for the Fourth Annual Plutus Awards may do so by proudly displaying this badge.
