Therefore, although I think that the competition was very interesting and a great idea, I feel that the ideas proposed will never actually be used and the whole contest was merely just for amusement and fun. As well as to see the creative opinions around the world about how they felt the White House should be like. Sincerely, Zak Murdock...
