Darnita Howard, left, and Tamara Boynton

A few weeks ago, qnotes profiled High Point couple Tamara Boynton and Darnita Howard, and their quest to win scholarships to this year’s Netroots Nation conference in Las Vegas.

The voting ended June 25, and the winners have been announced. Unfortunately, our dynamic Tar Heel lesbian blogging couple, didn’t make the cut. We wish them the best, and say, “Keep on blogging!”

Contest winners were Natasha Dillon, Zack Ford and Zack Rosen.

(As a funny, totally NSFW/Not Safe For Work side note: Rosen campaign long and hard to get his scholarship win. More at Fleshbot. And seriously, don’t say we didn’t warn you: don’t click if you’re at work or if grandma is nearby.)
