#FlashtagChallenge - August Contest on Instagram. Get ready to win!
July 24, 2017
If you've seen this graphic on Instagram, you already know that I'm planning a fabulous challenge for the month of August. It's going to be a great opportunity to win prizes, including, books, gift cards, and more! There will be several winners, so the more you play, the more chances to win! Here's the breakdown of the rules:
*Each time you post, your name gets entered into the drawing for a prize. You post once, your name goes in once. You post all 31 days? You have 31 chances to win! So definitely some good incentive to play the game with us all month!
*Winners will be announced September 1st, 2017, (contest ends August 31st, 2017 at midnight), and winners must be willing to share their mailing address with me so I can mail out prizes!
***MOST IMPORTANT: Please remember to include the hashtag #FlashtagChallenge in your post so I can find it. No hashtag, no entry (because I won't know it's there)
*To get a detailed description of each day's prompt, see below. Happy posting!
