Win an iPod Shuffle in Grasshopper Twitter Trivia Contest
Apr 20, 2012
April is National Lawn Care Month, and to celebrate, The Grasshopper Company, manufacturer of commercial-grade zero-turn riding mowers and professional grounds maintenance equipment, is hosting a trivia contest on the popular social networking site Twitter.
The contest will begin on Monday, April 23, with a series of tweets about pertinent lawn care issues and information. The contest will conclude with one trivia question Friday, April 27, with the necessary clues to answer the question correctly “scattered” among tweets from Grasshopper throughout the week. Participants will be required to find the clues and piece them together to answer the question. The 10th correct reply tweet from a Grasshopper Twitter follower will win an iPod Shuffle.
"National Lawn Care Month helps increase awareness of issues facing the lawn care industry, as well as the economic and environmental benefits the industry provides," says Ruthanne Stucky, marketing director at Grasshopper. "This contest will not only educate our followers on these issues and benefits, but will also provide some entertainment and friendly competition at the same time."
