IWU to hold Facebook contest, give away iPhone X

Indiana Wesleyan University’s marketing department will be initiating a social media campaign on Monday, Jan. 8 called #WhyChooseIWU, which will result in one randomly selected winner receiving a free iPhone X. The campaign aims to encourage University pride and cultivate an archive of genuine, personal stories from members of the IWU residential community highlighting why they choose IWU.

To enter, members of the IWU residential campus are encouraged to upload a video to Facebook explaining why they choose to be a part of the IWU community. The requirements are as follows:

  1. Video must be 30 seconds or less.
  2. Video must introduce who you are and how you are connected to IWU.
  3. Video must be filmed horizontally.
  4. Video must be uploaded to Facebook with the hashtag #WhyChooseIWU

The contest will officially end at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 19. A winner will be randomly chosen on Monday, Jan. 22 and notified through email. While anyone is encouraged to submit a video, only students on the residential campus are eligible to win. For more information about the contest, visit IWU’s Facebook page.

“We’re very excited to kick off this campaign,” said Scott Todd, executive director of marketing and communication. “Our IWU community is comprised of people from a variety of backgrounds; yet, every one of them made the decision to attend or work at IWU. Our goal is to simply share their stories in a fun and lighthearted way.”
