Our own personal message travel trough space with SETI program

Whether there some other intelligent life form up there? If it is, how can we prove it? On the 2010 there was competition about sending our own personal message into space. For participation in this project there was an open invitation:

To enter the competition, submit your message of no more than 40 words at Entries will be accepted until February 28, with the winners being announced in March. For full details and terms and conditions, see the website.

Nearly 1000 messages received from all over the world were beamed out from BT’s Goonhilly Earth Station in Cornwall towards the Orion neblua at 2pm on 12 March, the first day of National Science and Engineering Week UK. It will take over 1,200 years for the messages to arrive, travelling at the speed of light.

Now all what we need to do is hoping that some one will pick that message, transalte it, understand it, and somehow respond to our grand grand grand grand grand...(x300)...grand grand grand grand son or daughter? Yeah...that's definitely going to happen...sure...

Anyhow, here's some winning entries:
