We’re quickly approaching this weekend’s #24in48 readathon and your cohosts are furiously making last minute preparations. But we wanted to take the opportunity to tell you about the prize packs you’re eligible to win if you complete a full 24 hours of reading. These packs are only possible because of the generosity of our donors and we’re so excited to be able to offer some really great options this year.
In order to be eligible for one of these prize packs, you must:
- Sign up officially using your name, a valid email, and a URL/username for the platforms you’ll be updating during the ‘thon. (If you need to edit your response to include an actual link or username, you can do so by following the confirmation link you received when you signed up.)
- Be active on those platforms during the readathon.
- Use some method of tracking your time. This can include your phone’s stopwatch function or a digital stopwatch (preferred) or a written time tracker, but your 24 hours must be clearly recorded. (If you need a digital stopwatch, Google “stopwatch.”) *Pro-tip: take a screenshot of your stopwatch every time you pause it, just in case you accidentally reset it instead of restarting it.*
- In the post that goes up at the end of the readathon, you’ll be able to submit your info and proof of 24 hours of reading. You’ll also be asked to note whether you’re US-based or international.
You’ll have until midnight ET on January 29th to submit this proof, after which the form will be closed.
Obviously, your proof is on the honor system and, while we’re thrilled to be able to offer these prize packages, please don’t abuse it.
Also, please don’t forget your internationally-based brethren and donate if you can.
