I think the idea behind this is lovely. Giving hugs and thanks can be very supportive and encouraging. I myself give them and I'm always very pleased when I receive them.
However making a contest like this I believe there would be people just clicking randomly on all posts. It would be a contest in clicking.

What I'd suggest instead would be finding a member with most RECEIVED thanks/hugs
On another forum there were polls about members who are seen as most supportive, friendly, community builders, and there's also a category for newcomers...

I'd suggest praising quality rather than quantity
