UPDATE: These rules are null and void and have been replaced with an updated version announced on the blog on April 12, 2012, entitled, “Become Foursquare Mayor, Earn an Awesome T-Shirt!“
Become the “Mayor” of your campus on Foursquare, and you could win a Mayor t-shirt and an Apple iPod nano! Next time you’re on campus, make sure to “check in” on Foursquare. You can find your campus on Foursquare by visiting www.foursquare.com/calicollegesd. All 10 campus locations of California College San Diego are on Foursquare.
To win a Mayor t-shirt, you must be the Foursquare “Mayor” of one of the 3 campus locations of California College San Diego by the contest deadline. The contest deadline is on the last Friday of each module at 12:00 PM MST. Winners will be announced on the California College San Diego official blog.
In addition, winning a Mayor t-shirt enters you for a chance to win an Apple iPod nano. Every 3 modules, we will randomly select a Mayor from all the winning Mayors of the previous 3 modules, and that individual will be awarded an Apple iPod.
Not familiar with Foursquare? Check out this short video explaining Foursquare.
In order to check-in properly on Foursquare, you need to physically be at a campus location. Because of that, online students are not able to participate unless they can check in at a physical campus location. Sorry! But don’t fret, another contest will be coming soon just for the Online Department.
Employees and their relatives are not eligible for this contest.
