I think the ICFP Programming Contest does a good job of promoting 
functional languages without degrading into a religious war. It's 
certainly worth looking at for help in developing guidelines:


The contest is more concerned with speed and power, but it has an 
interesting "lightning round" where submissions received within 24 hours 
compete only with each other, to judge a language's suitability for 
rapid prototyping.

It's the ability to develop webapps quickly and easily maintain them 
that attracts me to mod_python (I don't use frameworks, either).
