(Austin, TX) March 1, 2017 —bulb, a leading provider of multi-media digital portfolios for the education market, today announced its #ShareYourSmarts Social Sweepstakes, a portfolio-sharing contest to begin March 1 in part to celebrate the kicking off of the SXSWedu 2017 expo. For this contest, bulb is asking educators and students to submit their best bulb page, or to create a new bulb page expressing their latest learning, ideas, or artistic creations.

"We’ve learned that the minute people use bulb digital portfolios they can’t get enough of it,” said Eric Goldreyer, CEO and co-founder of bulb. “There are hundreds of thousands of students and teachers using bulb to create all sorts of amazing content. Imagine your very own place where you create, share, and showcase the things that matter the most to you. Not to forget, you can also enjoy the amazing work of others. I think what people like the most about bulb is that it's yours. All of your hard work, your creativity, your best stuff stays with you for a lifetime."

Steps to Participate

1.Create a bulb page as a student, educator, or administrator. (If you don’t already have a bulb account, sign up for a FREE bulb trial account here)

2.Share the URL of your bulb page on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #ShareYourSmarts anytime during the month of March.

3.The Twitter or Instagram post with the most number of likes and retweets combined wins the $1,000 grand prize scholarship.

The contest is open to all pre-K through college students, as well as educators and school administrators who create a bulb page. The grand prize is a $1,000 scholarship, and for every 1,000 retweets and likes on posts using the hashtag, bulb will select another winner (up to 10) to receive a $500 scholarship towards continuing education and other school resources.

Eligible tweets and posts must be posted to Instagram or Twitter between March 1, 2017, and March 31, 2017. Contest participants do not have to attend SXSWedu to win, but bulb invites all participants who are attending to visit the bulb booth. Winners will be contacted directly via Instagram/Twitter direct private message by Monday, April 3.

Participants are evaluated on style, and use of bulb features like images, videos, attachments and embeds. Tips on how to create better bulb pages can be found here.
