Seaway Mall in Welland, Ontario is celebrating back to school with “School’s In!” – a video contest where students compete for a grand prize of $250. With the new school year in full effect, Seaway Mall recognizes that it’s expensive for students and parents and wants to help. “School’s In!” is an online video contest where contestants are able to submit a video plea for a grand prize of a $250 Seaway Mall gift card. In addition, the runner-up will receive a $100 gift card and third place will receive a $50 gift card.
“Back to school shopping can become very overwhelming and costly,” states Michael Belcastro, President of Seaway Mall. “Here at Seaway, we understand the additional expenses that occur and want to be able to help out with a contest that is not only fun, but will also get students excited for their return to school!”
Interested contestants, of all ages and from any school in Ontario, must submit a 45-second video plea of why they need a back to school upgrade. Contestants are required to discuss in the video which school he/she attends, what back to school supplies they need (e.g. laptop, clothes, etc.) and what they love most about Seaway Mall. Videos may be submitted via email until September 12. On September 13, all videos will be uploaded to the Seaway Mall Facebook page where followers will be able to “like” their favourite video, which will also count as votes. Voting period will last until September 21 and the winner will be announced on Friday, September 23.
In addition to winning a $250 Seaway Mall gift card, the winner will have their video posted on the Seaway Mall website and will also be featured in the Seaway Mall e-blast as well as on the Mall’s Facebook Page.
Throughout the submission period, 17 lucky contestants will also have a chance to receive a $10 Seaway Mall gift card. Contestants are encouraged to showcase their video plea in a creative manner. The more creative the video, the more votes the video will receive. All videos should be submitted to Seaway Mall at firstname.lastname@example.org.
