Hey Blue vs Blue readers, every once and a while our SB Nation mothership lets us know about a contest one of our sponsors is running, and ask us to let you know about it. This is one of those times, and fortunately, this contest is actually pretty great.
The contest is called "Xfinity Presents: The Ultimate Sports Social Media Job" - XFINITY is launching a nationwide contest to find their next social media czar, with benefits that include behind-the-scenes access at the biggest sporting events nationwide in 2013.
The winner will receive:
- Unparalleled access to the country's premier sporting events
- Annual salary
- XSG Home Studio in Philadelphia apartment
- 12 months of free Comcast/XFINITY service (TV with all sports packages, internet and phone)
- This is truly a dream job opportunity for anyone looking to make a name for themselves in the world of sports and social media.
Here's how it works:
From now until February 18, you can log on to Facebook.com/XFINITY and submit a video on the Ultimate Sports Social Media Job contest tab that shows why your sports knowledge, social media expertise, personality, and passion for Comcast products and services makes you the perfect candidate for the job.
The top video submissions will be featured on the Ultimate Sports Social Media Job contest tab located on Facebook.com/XFINITY for Wild Card voting from March 4-11. Ten semifinalists will be flown to Philadelphia for performance evaluations at XFINITY Live! Five finalists will be on-site for baseball's opening weekend April 5-7. Following that weekend, a panel of judges will evaluate each performance and announce the winner of the contest in mid-April.
Head over today to Facebook.com/XFINITY and click on the Ultimate Sports Social Media Job contest tab for all the details, as well as contest rules. Enter soon, as February 18 is the deadline for video submissions!
(Editor's note: I think my favorite part of the video is them promising you a business card. SWEET!)
So get out there and make us proud, BvB readers - somebody win this thing so that we can get insider access at all the big sports events next year. (And preferably let it be a UNC fan so they can spend a year sniping at Duke in the process.)
