Community, I would really encourage you all to apply to become a champion. You get to work with a lot of really smart people, which to me is the best benefit. These guys know many tips and tricks and are very excited to share. They are fun, entertaining, and diverse. You also get find out about new updates before others, and it is a great resume builder. You have nothing to lose by applying and lots to gain.
I've applied...I hope I'm good enough :-)
