Over the summer, I announced the creation of the Water Efficiency Community Corner, a place for our readers to: “Keep track of the latest happenings on and off the show floor at AWWA ACE11, and share your insights and images with our Water Efficiency Community Corner.” The Water Efficiency Community Corner is a new, interactive Web feature that allows users to keep track of the latest happenings at various industry events. Attendees can access information about the event while also uploading images and sharing their own insights via Twitter and Facebook.
As part of the inauguration of the community corner, we encouraged AWWA ACE 11 visitors to post a photo (or video) of their visit to the Water Efficiency booth for a chance to win an iPad. We at Water Efficiency and Forester Media, Inc. would like to congratulate the winner of our “Ready, Set, Share!” contest. Aaron Boulton-Chaykowski, B.Sc., a Water Management Technician for the City of Calgary, AB, won a black, 16-GB iPad.
Chosen by a random drawing, the winner was picked from ACE 11 attendees who entered the contest online and uploaded photos of their visit to the Water Efficiency booth.
“The strong response to our contest reflects how social media has changed and enhanced the way we interact with colleagues and industry experts,” says Dan Waldman, President of Forester Media, Inc., and Publisher of Water Efficiency Magazine.
“We are excited about this opportunity to connect with our readers and are proud to be able to provide our audience with a way to interact with us, and their colleagues, at industry events like ACE 11.”
