Well... for other things beside 'the' mascot.. i would say have a
seperate prize paid in swag to most 'popular' even if the popularity
contest makes absolutely no effort to count unique votes. For logos or
icons or background artwork.. you could easily have the judged on
merit winner that you include in an official way.. and the popular
choice which is honored in a less official way.  Two winners for those
sorts of things.. isn't a big deal.  For 'the' mascot however I'm not
sure having two winners is constructive.
