We’re engaging our community online this summer through many events and activities. One of those opportunities is fun social media challenges. Everyone is invited to enter for a chance to get involved and win cash and prizes.
With most of our community working from home lately, our latest challenge was for everyone to submit photos of their home workspaces or offices, whether they were creative, messy, or just plain awful. Everyone who submitted a photo was entered into a drawing to win a $100 gift card to Amazon for office supplies (or whatever they want!).
The winner was Jacklyn Chiu with her impromptu desk of a dining table turned into a workspace. She won against dozens of other people who entered the contest. Take look at the gallery below to see the photos that people submitted.
Want to participate in our next challenge for a chance to win more prizes? View an overview of all our social media challenges here. Or visit our online events calendar to see these events and everything else we’re planning for the summer here: lassonde.utah.edu/calendar.
