Participate by voting, presenting in person, and sending in files

How to Vote: All the ideas will be presented in video form on YouTube, Facebook, and via the Bonika.com website. Idea videos will be online, and voting will begin on August 4th  and end at midnight on August 11, 2024. Winners will be announced on August 12. There will be in-person winners voted on by those at the event, on-line winners voted on on-line and overall winners. There will also be a "Bonnie's Choice" for the idea that she will most likely use the most. 

How to Enter:

  1. Present in person at the Sharpeners Jam on Sunday August 5, 2024.

  2. Send an MP4 file to admin@bonika.com. For larger files, you can use Google Drive, Dropbox, or OneDrive. Alternatively, you can mail us a USB flash drive.

  3. Send photos and descriptions to admin@bonika.com. We will create an MP4 file for you. You can accompany that with a voice recording describing your idea.


  • Ideas can be for sharpening, marketing, or organization.
  • Idea presentations must be less than 5 minutes.
  • No multi-level marketing ideas.

Winners will be announced via the internet and will receive a prize (to be announced) and a certificate.

Hints to Win: Winning ideas are usually presented in person or in a clear, high-resolution video presentation. They are easy to understand and unique. Both newbies and veteran sharpeners have been first-place winners in the past. Good luck!

Deadline to submit ideas via the internet: July 19, 2024.
