Locate, Post, Win! The IDEA Center is hosting a social media competition and everyone on-campus is able to participate. Your job is this:

Locate the elusive yellow Handshake Chair around campus. 

Post a photo with you, the chair, and your friends with #gfuhandchair

Win a $50 Amazon Gift Card on 9/29 if you qualify!

The Need a Hand? Social Media Competition will run from 9/18 - 9/29. Everyday, "hint" photos will be posted on the IDEA Center's Instagram account, @gfuidea, in Stevens, and in the SUB, to help you find the chair that day. The chair will be at a new location on-campus every day until 9/29. At the end of each day, daily winners will be announced and awarded points based on their fun, creative photo. Whoever gains the most points by 9/29 will win $50 Amazon Gift Cards for themselves and their friends!

*A group photo must be a maximum of 4 people. Have a private account? DM your photo to @gfuidea. All photos must be sumbitted by 5pm every day in order to be eligble for points.
