Calling all selfie lovers! If you missed out on the 2015 Healthy Selfie Contest thisfall, now's your chance to join in on the fun! Have a New Year's Resolution you're trying to maintain past January? Let us help motivate you!
Introducing the second round of the Healthy Selfie contest brought to you by the Pottstown Area Health & Wellness Foundation(Mission Healthy Living) and The Pottstown Mercury. This time around, the contest is dedicated to motivating the community to embrace healthy living as a year-round practice, not just a New Year's fad. We invite the community to submit selfies of themselves participating in their favorite healthy activities in 2016 for a chance to win $50 in gift cards to local businesses!
For those unfamiliar with the concept, a selfie is a picture of oneself, taken by oneself, usually taken with a smartphone or other digital device.
The Healthy Selfie contest was first introduced in October to provide a fun way for the community to embrace healthier living, showcasing their healthy habits daily. The second round of the contest will begin next Monday, Feb. 1 and run until Friday, March 4 (five weeks).
To enter, participants must submit a selfie, with a brief description of the healthy activity they are completing, to the Mission Healthy Living (MHL) Facebook page. Participants may upload one selfie, per person, per day (five photos total per person, Monday-Friday). The deadline to submit each week is Friday at noon.
The weekly winners will be chosen via random selection and announced right here in our Healthy Hub each week by 5 p.m. on Fridays. The winners will have till the following Monday at noon to claim their prize or a new winner will be selected. To claim your prize, email Skye Tulio at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each submitted selfie MUST feature a healthy activity or it will not be eligible for the contest. Use #MissionHealthySelfie to share with us on Twitter @missionhealthyu (Please note, this will not count as a submission. The selfie must be uploaded to the MHL Facebook in order to be eligible for the contest).
Don't miss your opporutinity to share your healthy living journey! You never know who you could inspire with just one healthy selfie.
