Steps to Participate
1) Create a bulb page as a student, educator, or administrator. (If you don’t already have a bulb account, sign up for a FREE bulb trial account here)
2) Share the URL of your bulb page on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #ShareYourSmarts anytime during the month of March.
3) The Twitter or Instagram post with the most number of likes and retweets combined wins the $1,000 grand prize scholarship.
The contest is open to all pre-K through college students, as well as educators and school administrators who create a bulb page. The grand prize is a $1,000 scholarship, and for every 1,000 retweets and likes on posts using the hashtag, bulb will select another winner (up to 10) to receive a $500 scholarship towards continuing education and other school resources.
Eligible tweets and posts must be posted to Instagram or Twitter between March 1, 2017, and March 31, 2017. Contest participants do not have to attend SXSWedu to win, but bulb invites all participants who are attending to visit the bulb booth. Winners will be contacted directly via Instagram/Twitter direct private message by Monday, April 3.
Participants are evaluated on style, and use of bulb features like images, videos, attachments and embeds. Tips on how to create better bulb pages can be found here.
