The Annual Points Contest has begun! This is always a fan favorite, because while the rules are the same, the prizes are at their prize-iest!

 

For the next four weeks (today through July 29th), 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 — 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 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 Community gnome socks.

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

  • Tier 3 requires 200 points and will have 10 randomly selected winners who’ll receive a pair of Meraki socks, a pair of Cisco Meraki blue light glasses, and a Cisco Meraki Community backpack.

  • 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 MV22X (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 Monday (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 29th at 11 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: Monday, July 1st, 2024 at 11am EST through Monday, July 29th, 2024 at 10:59am 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 
  • Complete rules and eligibility can be found here
