EDWARDSVILLE – Voting continues in a photo contest sponsored by “Get to Know m.e.,” the regional image campaign that celebrates why people love living and working in the Metro East.
The contest, identified with the hashtag #thisismymetroeast, asked residents to submit photos of themselves with their favorite person, place, thing or activity in the Metro East alongside a caption about what it is about that special thing that makes it “their” Metro East.
There will be a first-, second- and third-place winner:
• First place will win a 42mm Space Gray Aluminum Case Apple Watch Sport with Black Sport Band
• Second place will receive a $50 gift card to a local restaurant (winner’s choice)
• Third place will receive a “Get to know m.e.” swag bag
Project manager of the campaign, Carol Bartle, said “This is just another way we can bring the community together, embrace each other and show support for an initiative that makes the Metro East a strong community.”
Submissions were collected until Nov. 30. Voting for favorite photo will end on Dec. 15, and will be decided on by the general public in a photo gallery at http://www.get2knowthemetroeast.com. The photos with the most votes will win.
