Around Colorado, nearly six thousand former attendees and supporters of the InnEdCo summer conference will receive their invitation postcards in the next two weeks. Upon receiving their postcard, many people will likely look at the pretty picture on the front and use the information and web links to start planning their summer at Copper Mountain, but then what? Some may end up on the refrigerator to save the date, but most will end up in the recycling bin or trash can.
Well, we believe our humble little postcard deserves a better fate than this.
So, we are launching #PostcardSelfies this year to show just how many places these postcards have been. When you receive your postcard in the mail, don’t let it sit in a stack of papers or fall into the trash. Bring it with you and take a picture with it! Show your postcard a good time.
You can bring it to your school and pose with a bunch of innovative teachers. You could take it to the top of a fourteener and take a picture with the sunset in the background. You could even give your postcard some arms and legs, and see how it wants to explore your house.
Whatever you do with it, take a picture. Then, post your picture to Twitter with the hashtag #PostcardSelfies or to Facebook on the InnEdCo page (https://www.facebook.com/InnEdCo). Each picture you post gives you a chance to win a $25 gift card to the app store of your choice. The winning pictures will be chosen based upon the total number of retweets or likes each receives, so make sure your friends see your awesome picture too! Don’t worry, we will have multiple winners in different weeks, so your picture can be anytime from now until the beginning of the conference.
For those of you who are worried you won’t receive a postcard but would like to take a picture for #PostcardSelfies, here is a printable version (or just put it on an iPad and take a picture of that if you want to save paper): http://bit.ly/innedco14postcard.
Our first winner will be chosen on April 21st, so start taking those #PostcardSelfies as soon as you get yours. Thank you for being such a wonderful part of InnEdCo, and we look forward to seeing you this summer!
