Facebook Super Selfie Challenge

Many of you may be wondering what all of the Las Vegas talk is about and why so many TeachersPayTeachers sellers are excited.  For the 2nd year, TeachersPayTeachers is holding a conference and I think many people are excited to meet, share ideas, and have fun with other teachers!

But not everyone is going--and that, my friends, is totally okay.  I have been there. I sat at home last summer with my sweet baby boy and felt like I missed so much of the fun!

This year we are changing that!

We want EVERYONE to be a part of the FUN!

Here is how you can join us:

1. LIKE our Facebook page.

Click the image above to head there now!

2. LOOK each day for a Super Selfie Challenge to be posted.

3. POST your selfie in the comments and be entered to win a prize for that day!

The fun begins on Wednesday, July 8 and goes through Friday, July 10.

We can't wait to see all of your beautiful faces!

Super Selfie Challenge in Vegas

Happy July friends! It’s Jillian here to share some breaking news!  To embrace the excitement that many are having about the Teachers Pay Teachers conference next week, the ladies of Primary Powers introduce the SUPER SELFIE CHALLENGE!

Heading to Vegas and want to play? Here’s how:

Wednesday, July 8th (Starting at the Blogger Meet-up) - Friday, July 10th 

1.  THE HUNT-  Keep an eye out for any one of these 15 Primary Powers Bloggers in Vegas:

They will each be wearing this pin for easy recognition!

2.  TAKE A SELFIE- Who doesn't like a selfie?  
  • If you find one of our bloggers, get out your phone/camera and take a selfie with us! (selfie stick optional!) 
  • Upload it to Instagram using the hashtag #superselfiechallenge
  • Be sure to tag the blogger and Primary Powers in your post!
3.  THE EARLY BIRD CATCH-  If you are one of the first 5 people to snap a photo with that particular author each day, she will present you with a card to redeem for $5.00 to her TpT store!  (That’s 15 authors, with a total of 15 gift cards per author… that’s a whole lot of TpT love!)

4.  GRAND PRIZE-  If you aren’t one of the first 5 to find us every day, don’t worry!  Still snap that selfie!  Your photo will still automatically enter you into our grand prize raffle!  The more photos you take, the more entries you have, and the better your chances to win!  What is that grand prize exactly?

We know that you will all be beautifying your classrooms soon (but not too soon!) and we wanted to help take some of the financial strain off of your back-to-school shopping list.  The grand prize winner of the SUPER SELFIE CHALLENGE will score a $200.00 gift card to Target to purchase any organizing bins, school supplies, or back-to-school outfits you may be eyeing.  Good luck, and we hope you find us in Vegas!
