There is no award named as ' AT cash reward price' as mentioned by the author in his thread. The author may check the data again and cite the exact name of the award in case it is any award other than what mentioned by the author Krishna in his response #575050 above. I have also visited the profile of the author of the thread and found no award listed by the name mentioned by him.
As far as, I know there are two types of TOW (Thread of the Week) awards. Under one scheme a thread among all the threads posted by all authors is selected by the editors on their own for the TOW award and few more threads for special prizes. No separate efforts are to be made by the authors i.e. submitting any contest entry etc.
Under the other type of TOW award, a word is given by the editors for the week and the members who wish to participate in the contest may submit their entries. The editors select the winning threads from among the submitted entries.
Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.
