The good people at Evo have teamed up with NS to revamp the Member of the Month contest. Each month a new member receives a prize pack from Evo and bragging rights for being crowned as the winner.

This month, we’re stoked to announce that Erica.MN has won the people’s vote! What landed her Member of the month? Probably all of the great articles she’s been writing, including interviews with 1337, Ashley Battersby, and Ben Wannamaker along with the midwest diaries.
