That's fine.

None of these are finalists.  Please pick up one of the 9 finalists
instead.

If you don't mind answering, what made you think these 3 would be
appropriate, given that the task's name clearly says "finalists"?
(The task description also mentions "and optionally some non-finalists",
but it's probably not a good idea to start with the optional portion.)

Can/should anything be described more clearly on our ideas page or on
the PHC website that would prevent this misunderstanding?

Thanks,

Alexander
