Update on Mars Society Rover Challenge

I'm taking a break on the Space Access '07 posting to work on my backlog of other space prize posts. In this one, I'll note that the Mars Society has recently updated their University Rover Challenge competition site. The winning team (up to 5 members) gets conference tickets, rooms, and transportation to this year's Mars Society Conference (at UCLA), as well as $5,000. The Society anticipates this will be an annual competition that will grow in the future. They have sponsorship opportunities for those want to support the prize and to be recognized as sponsors in various ways.
