[CONTEST ENDED] The annual points contest is BACK and better than ever!

UPDATE: this contest has ended! Stay tuned for the final points round up and the announcement of our many winners!

 

The Annual Points Contest has begun! With all of the new members who are joining us fresh from Cisco Live, we thought what better time to host one of your favorite contests than now? The rules are the same, but the prizes are at their prize-iest!

 

For the next four weeks (today through July 14th), you’ll earn points just for participating in community discussions. The more points you earn, the more chances you have to win some fantastic prizes.

 

Details below!

 

How it works

 

Just like in our previous Points Contests, starting today, certain actions you take in the community will earn you points. Those points will enter you to win a smattering of Meraki-branded prizes. You needn’t opt in β€” simply taking one of these point-earning actions will do:

  • Reply to any topic or blog post β€” 5 points
  • Start a topic (e.g. ask a question, pose a discussion point) β€” 5 points

 

To optimize the bang for your buck, writing high-quality posts can earn you even more points:

  • Receive a kudo β€” 7 points
  • Write an answer that gets marked as a solution β€” 10 points

 

As you can see, the more helpful your action to the community, the more points you receive!

 

There are 3 tiers that you can reach based on the number of points you amass. Within each tier, at the end of the month, we’ll randomly select winners to receive swag as outlined below:

 

  • Tier 1 requires 30 points and will have 50 randomly selected winners who’ll receive a pair of Meraki socks

  • Tier 2 requires 100 points and will have 25 randomly selected winners who’ll receive a pair of Meraki socks and a Cisco Meraki beanie.

Monitor PM2.5 and TVOC

Monitor temperature, humidity, and noise

 

AND, just like in previous years, everyone who earns enough points to achieve any tier will be entered to win the GRAND PRIZE of a brand new MV93 (with 5-year license)! Reaching Tier 1 gets you 1 entry, Tier 2 doubles your entries and… (guess what!?) Tier 3 triples your entries to win!

 

That means that, over the course of this month, you could write just 6 replies or author just 3 solutions anywhere in the community and be entered to win one of these:

How will I know how I’m doing?

 

To keep you all up to date on your progress, every Friday (starting next week) I’ll post a list of everyone who has reached Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3.

 

When are the winners chosen?

 

On July 14th at 10 am EST, the contest will end. We’ll then randomly select winners for each tier (50 for Tier 1, 25 for Tier 2, and 10 for Tier 3) and we’ll also draw the lucky winner of the GRAND PRIZE.

 

We’ll announce each of the winners here, so be sure to stay tuned!

 

More details:
  • Promotion period: Friday, June 16th, 2023 at 10am EST through Friday, July 14th, 2023 at 9:59am EST
  • Up to three possible entries per community member: Each time you progress a tier, your entry remains in the tier below as well (meaning more chances to win stuff!). If you are randomly selected to win in two or three separate tiers, you’ll receive only the prize from the highest level tier. If you are selected to receive the Grand Prize, this will be in addition to any tier-level prizes.
  • Shipping limitations: We can only ship prizes to residents of these Eligible Countries

That's awesome, still waiting for a Meraki Polo to be one of the prizes though. I'd rock that at work.

The MT14 would be an awesome add in to tinker with and adding to the gallery of projects, like a great combo with remote thermostat project for monitoring and energy savings

@van604 the MT14 would be great as it's not available yet via over distribution partner 🀣

Still, I am thrilled to see the levels for the first time on Friday. πŸ₯³
