Challenge Prep Pack Social Media Contest

Challenge Prep Pack Social Media Contest

February 9, 2016

We want you – M3 Challenge participants – to be fully prepped and ready for Challenge weekend February 27-28, 2016. So we’re trying something new this year. From February 9 to 16, we’re holding a Facebook contest asking for your input. Tell us – what motivated you to form a team for the M3 Challenge (or you for you to encourage your child/student to do so)? At the end, we’ll choose one lucky winner who’ll be sent the Challenge Prep Pack (see below for details). So, please make your comment on the post and share it with someone else who might be able to use the Pack!

How it Works

  • Between February 9 and February 16 at midnight ET, go to the M3 Challenge Facebook page and tell us – what motivated you to form a team for the M3 Challenge (or you for you to encourage your child/student to do so)?
  • Following February 16, the M3 Challenge organizers will choose the most inspiring comment on the post as the contest winner.
  • The week of February 16, the winner will be contacted by M3 organizers via Facebook, through a Facebook direct message. The winner will need to respond to this message with their address in order for the Prize Pack to be sent. If you don’t respond within 24 hours, we will contact the runner up and you will no longer be eligible to receive the Prize Pack.
  • The Prize Pack will be mailed out to the winner and will arrive in advance of Challenge weekend on February 27-28.
  • All participation in the contest should be made through the Facebook post; the contest will not be hosted through any other social channels.

The Prep Pack Prize

 The selected winner of the Challenge Prep Pack Social Media Contest will be mailed (at no charge, of course):

  • $100 Visa Gift Card (can you say takeout?)
  • Team snack basket – loads of delicious goodies!
  • Challenge weekend supplies – pencils, erasers, notebooks and more (for a team of five)
  • Helpful resources – packets of sample questions and copies of the Math Modeling Handbook

Eligibility

Everyone who is interested in the M3 Challenge and would like to comment on the post is eligible. You do not need to be associated with a registered 2016 M3 Challenge team. But, we encourage you to learn more about the Challenge and consider registering at www.m3challegnge.siam.org
