[CONTEST ENDED] This contest is ON POINT.

UPDATE: As of April 30th 9:59 AM PDT, this contest has ended. Stay tuned for the announcement of all 80+ winners!

 

Today marks the beginning of our biggest swag contest ever! We’re running a MONTH long challenge with over 80 chances to win some fresh Cisco Meraki swag.

 

How it works

As of today, certain actions you take in the community will earn you points. Those points will enter you to win a smattering of rad prizes. You needn’t opt in — simply taking one of these point-earning actions will do:

 

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

 

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

 

  • Receive a kudo — 7 points
  • Write an answer that gets marked as a solution — 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 use a complex algorithm for selecting winners (a hat) to receive swag as outlined below:

 

  • Tier 1 requires 30 points and will have 50 randomly selected winners who’ll receive a custom, limited-edition “I Speak Meraki” Pin

    "I Speak Meraki" pin"I Speak Meraki" pin
  • Tier 2 requires 100 points and will have 25 randomly selected winners who’ll receive a pin and a Meraki thermal bottle

  • Tier 3 requires 200 points and will have 10 randomly selected winners who’ll receive a pin, bottle, and a Meraki drawstring backpack

If free swag wasn’t enough, everyone who earns enough points to achieve any tier will be entered to win the GRAND PRIZE of a brand new MV12 WE (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:Screen Shot 2019-03-25 at 4.36.31 PM.png

 

How will I know how I’m doing?

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

 

When are the winners chosen?

On April 30th at 10 am PDT, 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: Tuesday, April 2nd, 2019 at 10am PDT through Tuesday, April 30th, 2019 at 9:59am PDT
  • 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
  • Complete rules and eligibility can be found here

I have just started my first school after an evaluation.  I have to tell you the ease of use and installation, let alone the meraki dashboard one stop management is really fantastic.  I often use the Make a Wish button and see the improvements being made on my behalf.  The M21 interior varifocal, the M12 and the M72 exterior have met all of my needs.

I can imagine myself sit in my backyard drinking cool water from my Meraki flask in the summer, whilst my MV12 keeping an eye on things. Ahhh... the bliss.

Successfully completed my ECMS1 online training course. It is really interesting. Meraki is the future of networking. 🙂

Good job @kami!

 

If you have completed the CMNA should you do ECMS1 online training or proceed to ECMS2?

Nick
Head in the Cloud

I would do the ECMS1. It is different to the CMNA. 

 

You will cover a lot of the same ground but you will still learn on the ECMS1

Hi @ASA-FTD ,

 

Yes, I am eligible now and I have already submitted the ECMS2. So let's see. But I will have to go to London for this. For three days of trainings.

Kam

@kami is it organized in London already? I though it was only SF for now?

@kami @BrechtSchamp ECMS2 is not yet available in London. We do have plans to expand the program there in the second half of this calendar year.
