‘Tis the season for treating ourselves and our loved ones! As a thank-you to our loyal readers and followers, and in appreciation of the local business owners that help make our neighborhood so awesome, we want to have a little fun with a giveaway!
Between today and December 24, post a picture of you shopping at a local Capitol Hill business for a chance to win a gift bag of goodies from our favorite shops!
- Post a picture to Instagram of you shopping at a small business in Ward 6. If you are not a selfie person, that’s okay. Get creative! We just need to be able to see that you shopped at a local small business in Ward 6.
- Include the hashtags #shopcapitolhill and #thehillishome in the caption.
- Once your picture appears on our contest tab on Facebook, tell your friends to go vote for your picture as their favorite. Please note that it can take 10-20 minutes for it to appear on the contest page. The tab is also not mobile optimized so you have to go old-school and access it from an actual computer.
The winners: We will contact the winners between December 26 and January 1. Make sure you are following us on Instagram so we can send you a direct message!
Prize: Gift bags with a selection of goodies from Ward 6 small businesses! We pick the goods**, but don’t worry we have good taste!
- Small Business in Ward 6: Yes, we are called The HILL is Home but we do cover all of Ward 6, so we want to extend this to all businesses in Ward 6. See the boundaries here.
- Hashtags: Please include BOTH the hashtags #shopcapitolhill AND #thehillishome to win. These need to be in the caption, NOT posted as a comment on your post.
- Vote to Win!: Everyone can vote once per day. The three posts with most votes that also meet the criteria above (Ward 6 business and both hashtags in the caption) will be selected to win. Winners will be selected at the discretion of the editorial team at The Hill is Home.
- Winners will be selected at the discretion of the editorial staff at The Hill is Home. If we notice any funny business in the voting, we will disqualify those entries.
- We reserve the right to remove any entries that include profanities, abusive language, or anything that is not suitable for all audiences. We’re a family-friendly site; please keep it clean and friendly.
- Writers of The Hill is Home are not qualified to win.
- No purchase necessary. Shopping does not mean purchasing. We encourage you to spend your money at our local businesses but you do not need to prove a purchase to enter or win.
