Downtown Dash – Social Engagement Challenge

Challenges to be completed by 9/8/11 at 11:00 p.m. CST

Before you get started, please be sure to read the Rules for the Social Engagement Challenge.
Challenges are listed below, we will update this page as more challenges become available.

 

Who will be crowned Most Socially Influential?

The Social Engagement Challenge will determine which Downtown Dash team is the most socially influential by the number of interactions they have online and the amount of traffic they drive to their team bio page on the Downtown Dash website. All completed challenges must be posted to Twitter and must include the #DTDash hashtag to be qualified as a completed challenge. Teams may create a Facebook Fan page for their team to share updates of completed challenges and share with friends and other teams. The creation of a team Facebook page is optional and teams must adhere to the Facebook promotional guidelines.

 

All teams who participate, and successfully complete at least two challenges, in the Social Engagement Challenge will receive a head start on 9/10/11 – IRL race day.

 

We don’t expect you to be attached at the hip!

All challenges only need to be performed once, by one teammate. Any additional challenges performed are acceptable, but may not gain you an advantage. Creativity is encouraged. Please be respectful of what you say about these businesses online.
