$3000 Prize for Loebner 2008

The Loebner Prize cash award for winning the annual bronze medal in 2008 will be $3000, with no "consolation" awards of $250.

Prize sponsor Hugh Loebner said he
added the $250 awards to defray travel costs when he added the
requirement that finalists be present at the competition.
Finalists will NOT have to present for the
2008 competition, so he added the money to sweeten the pot.

Another concern, Loebner said, was the plunge of the U.S. dollar.
