Every student needs technology. No matter what you are studying, what major you declared, what eventual career you are pursuing, you will be using some form of technology. And face it, new tech is better than old tech. New smartphones have better cameras and faster processing, new computers will start up quickly, run the latest software and show your work on an unbelievable display screen. Enter this contest and you can choose what new tech to buy before going back to school since Best Buy is giving away four $500 Best Buy gift certificates as the prizes.
Do all students really need tech?
Yes! There is no other answer. Ten years ago students could scrape by without a cell phone, or laptop, but not today. Tech is not a luxury, it is as necessary to an artist as a paintbrush. As mandatory for the chemistry student as a test tube. As indispensable for the English major as a dictionary. Take a look at the 360 degree video we are showing on Best Buy’s Facebook page (for mobile use this link) to see how tech is used by students studying a variety of different subjects. Then enter either on Facebook or enter here on the blog.
If you win you can use the gift certificate prize towards a new computer, a new printer, a new tablet, a new cellphone … or you might even want to get a few new pens (Best Buy has you covered with low tech writing utensils too!).
Here are the details: how to enter
On Facebook: In a comment on the Facebook post, guess what the 3 majors are of the students featured in the 360 degree video. You must guess all 3 correctly for your entry to be valid.
On the blog: enter a comment below this post telling us about your favourite back to school tech and why it would help make your school year a success. You must include the link to the product found on bestbuy.ca for your entry to be valid.
What you may win
We will randomly choose 4 entries from all valid entries on Facebook and on the blog. Each winner will receive a $500 Best Buy Gift Certificate.
The contest will run from August 14th until September 10th.
Remember you can only enter once, either on Facebook or on the blog (not both!). Tell your school friends too: if one of your school friends wins, that should earn you at least one early morning lecture of note taking so you can sleep in!
