WEAR It to Win It!

WearItThis summer the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Savannah District is promoting life jacket use with the WEAR IT to Win It campaign on Facebook and Twitter!

Now through Labor Day weekend, you could win a prize just by sharing photos of yourself or your friends and family wearing a life jacket! Post photos to our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/savannahcorps or tweet them to us using our Twitter handle @SavannahCorps. Be sure to use the hashtag #WEARIT.

Every Wednesday we will select our favorite photo posted during the previous calendar week (Sunday through Saturday) and award a prize. Photos will be judged based on subject matter, focus, creativity and overall emphasis on water safety.

If we choose your photo, you could win one free night of camping, or one free picnic shelter reservation with a day pass—granting free access to a Corps park for one day! Throughout the summer, we will award a total of 7 nights of free camping and 6 picnic shelter reservation/daily pass combos. Prizes are only valid for Corps-managed facilities at Hartwell Lake and J. Strom Thurmond Lake.

Each winner will also receive a free Coast Guard-approved Type IV boat throw cushion and a distress whistle courtesy of Sea Tow Clarks Hill/Thurmond Lake.

Winners will be announced and notified via the social networking site on which they submitted the photo (Facebook or Twitter). Once selected, winners will be asked to provide their contact information to the Corps to ensure receipt of their prizes. We will only award one prize per photographer, but feel free to post multiple photos throughout the summer. Corps employees may participate in the promotion but are not eligible to win prizes.

Photos shared on our Facebook and Twitter pages may be re-used in other Corps communication products, such as websites, blogs and brochures.

So spread the word, tell your friends and let’s have some fun showing how we WEAR IT!
