Shout Out! Drawings
Earn a chance to win a gift card by engaging with fellow conference attendees on asynchronous discussion boards available in various places on the conference website. Then, attend either the Welcome Session or one of the two Intersession Breaks to learn whether you’ve won!
How the Drawings Work
Initiate your entry by posting to asynchronous discussion forums on our conference site: Multiple threaded discussions are linked to conference pages. Post a message to the forums designated below to enter each drawing. The post can either start a new thread or respond to someone else’s message.
Finalize your entry by attending the drawing: To claim the prize, entrants must be present at the live drawing. However, entrants may designate a prize proxy if they cannot make this session. That individual (the proxy) simply needs to acknowledge their role when the entrant’s name is called.
Only one entry is allowed for each drawing, no matter how many posts are made. To ensure entrance in a drawing, make sure the name used on posts matches the conference registration. Once the list of entrants is finalized for each drawing, a winner will be randomly selected. If the person selected is not present, then another will be selected, until a present entrant is selected.
