I can't be the first person to ever want this website!

I'd like to set up an online lottery to pick a winner for a small contest. There is no money involved. What's the best way to do this?

I need a transparent way to pick 2 winners out of a small pool of entrants. I want to do this online so that there is no impression of favorites being played, etc.
Ideally, each participant would go to a website to enter into the contest, and then the program would randomly pick two winners.
Are there any free websites that do this? Or an easy way to set it up myself? Googling finds lots of sites where I myself could randomize the names and come up with winners, but I want something where the contestants themselves would enter their names in and get the results from a third party.
