25 Days, 25 Ways to Care Contest

Resources and Tips for 25 Days, 25 Ways to Care Contest

Overview

Nominate someone who does an exceptional job caring for others by entering the 25 Days, 25 Ways to Care Contest and Sweepstakes. This contest is a great way to acknowledge conventional and unconventional caregivers. For example, it could be a home health aide, teacher, firefighter or a grandparent, just to name a few.

Some things to know before entering:

  • The video must be no longer than 60 seconds and no larger than 50 MB.
  • The submission must nominate someone else and cannot be self-submitted.
  • Only one submission per day. BUT, that means more than one nominee can be entered!
  • Contest Link: www.createthegood.org/25days25ways

Prizes

Sweepstakes: Nominees are entered into a random daily drawing for a gift card of varying increments up to $500. All approved submissions are entered into the sweepstakes.

Contest: The nominee featured in the winning video will receive a grand prize $2,500 donation to the charity of his or her choice. The winning video will be selected by two criteria, 1) impact the nominee has made and 2) creativity of the video.

Tips

  • Approved entries are automatically entered into the random daily drawing for gift cards of varying increments up to $500. Since contest entries are not judged, an entry can be a quick video taken on a phone or mobile device talking about how the nominee has cared for others. The gift card goes to the nominee, so this is a great opportunity to recognize someone with a video that will be seen by others AND possibly win a gift card as a thank you for their great work.
  • Gain more entries in to the random daily gift card drawing by sharing you entry or entries on Facebook and Twitter.
  • Do you have more than one person you'd like to nominate? You can submit one entry per day.
  • For the contest, entries will be judged based on impact the nominee has had while caring for others and on the creativity of the video. A video can be taken with a smartphone, mobile device or professional equipment. You can try Windows Movie Maker or iMovie to edit your video. If video editing is not your thing, but you are a wiz at PowerPoint, you can export a PowerPoint presentation as a video.
