  1. Our Instagram contest will be system-wide and run from Tuesday, June 14-Saturday, August 6. Each week will have a different theme; participants will tag #sbplibrary and the week (e.g. #tsrp4) to be entered into a prize drawing. “TSRP” stands for “Teen Summer Reading Program.”

  2. To enter, participants must post a photo that complies with the weekly theme and is marked with BOTH of the official hashtags found in parentheses after the explanation of the theme, (see below; i.e. “#sbplibrary” and “#tsrp1”) to allow for easy retrieval. An entry must contain both hashtags to be considered for the prize drawing.

  3. Participants will be entered into a weekly drawing and three winners will be selected from each round. Winners will be notified via IG private message and will be asked to provide @sbplibrary with their local branch. Central staff member will then notify branch of winner’s screen name; winner will provide their IG screen name to branch staff to retrieve their prize.

  4. Three prizes will be awarded for every week of the contest, which will run from Sunday to Friday afternoon (Tues-Friday for Week 1). Winners will claim their prize at their local branch.
