20100305-piday-scienceblogs.jpgPull out the graph paper and forks, it's almost time to celebrate Pi Day! March 14 is a big party of a day for the math constant pi (3.14159..) and whether or not you can recite out to the fiftieth decimal place, you are allowed to eat lots of its homophone, pie.

This year we're joining forces with the folks at ScienceBlogs to host the 2010 Pi Day Pie Bake-off. (They share our pie-honoring values.) How does it work? You bake a delicious pie, upload a photo of it to Photograzing, then email your pie recipe to [email protected] before March 14 at midnight PST. Please include your name, blog or website (if you have one), and a link to your Photograzing image in the email.

Why should you enter? For a chance to win the bake-off grand prize of $314 in cold, hard cash. Three runner-ups will also score these sweet "Simple as 3.141592" t-shirts from mental_floss. (Last year's big champ was a Spicy Brittle Bacon Chocolate Pie, aka Spicy Pi Bacon Squared.) Now go forth and bake in honor of the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter!
