Posts Tagged ‘Twitter Contest’

As announced earlier, I have devised a Twitter Contest to:
A) Help keep my moral up; and
B) Keep me entertained for the next 9 days…

And there are prizes!

#GetWellSoonEric #SaveEric2013

Here is the contest… How many “famous people” can my followers or UNL Students/Staff/Faculty members can get to Tweet me the above hash tags!

Targets are based on things that would cheer me up… my colleagues at UNL, fellow professionals in higher education, fishing, sports, and entertainment!

Here are the rules… Tweets must come from people/organizations listed below and will be weighted differently. When you try to convince people to tweet me, you must include my Twitter handle on the request (@ericein) so I know who is badgering each person. And the “Famous person” must send me a tweet, or retweet “#GetWellSoonEric” and/or “SaveEric2013”. Since it might take multiple people tweeting at celebrities to get a response, I will award points to all people who solicited that person/organization; up to the point that the “famous person” responds. The winner in two categories will be the person with the most points. The categories and prizes:

1) UNL Students/Faculty/Staff: Lunch of winner’s choice (plus one) with myself and another CBA adviser; at a restaurant within walking distance of UNL’s city campus. (After I return from my recovery, of course… and after priority registration). Cancelled

2) Non-UNL (Now Open To Everyone): 20 Hand tied Flies from Flies Over Nebraska

The contest ends Friday March 29th at 10 PM!!!

Questions? Tweet at me… @ericein
