First Day of School Photo Contest - Win a Chromebook

Want to win a Chromebook? Submit your child's first day of school picture!


Whether your kids are home schooling, learning remotely full time, or are following a blended learning model, you'll likely take a first day of school picture for posterity. Submit that first day of school photo (however it looks for your family), and your child will be entered to win a 1 of 3 Chromebooks to make this school year a little easier.

 
 

 

Can I enter more than one picture of my child?
You can enter only one photo of each of your children.

What if I want to enter more than one child in the contest?
To enter multiple children, enter them one at a time. To do so, enter one, wait a day, and then enter the next one. Our rules prevent someone from entering the contest twice in one day, but you can enter multiple children by waiting a day between entries.

How do you choose the winners?
Our editors review every entry pick two winners, as our official rules indicate, “personality, charm, and originality, as conveyed by their photo.” One additional winner will be awarded as Fan Favorite, determined by the number of votes he or she receives.

Do I have to garner votes for my child to have a chance?
No, you do not have to solicit votes for your child to have a chance to win, as our editors’ picks are not based on votes. By soliciting votes, however, you do increase your chances of winning the Fan Favorite.

I have used vote-swapping sites in the past to help me win prizes—is that okay?
Simply put: No. Vote request sites and programs for soliciting votes are prohibited from use, and any entrant attempting to garner votes through sites such as these, including but not limited to voterequests.com and getonlinevotes.com, will be disqualified. We know it’s fun to win, and that it’s easy to get caught up in the “race” to see how your child is “competing”—but please, get into the real spirit of our contest, which is one of celebration and fun!



What do I win if my child garners the most votes and wins the Fan Favorite category?
The Fan Favorite will receive a Chromebook from our sponsor B&H Photo.

What will I win if my child is named as one of the two editors’ picks?
Both editors’ picks will each receive a Chromebook from our sponsor B&H Photo.

Where can I find the rules?
The full official rules to the NYMetroParents’ First Day of School Photo Contest can be found here.

What age children are eligible to be entered into the contest?
Kids ages 4-13 years old may be entered in NYMetroParents’ First Day of School Photo Contest.

I am having technical difficulties uploading a picture of my child—what should I do?
Send us a message on Facebook, and we’ll get back to you as quickly as we can.

When does the contest end?
Entries can be submitted and new votes registered until 11:59pm on Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2020.

When will winners be notified?
Parents or guardians of the winners will be notified on or before Oct. 9, 2020 by email. Once all winners are confirmed, they will be announced on NYMetroParents.com and its social media accounts.

Do I need to pay to enter?
No, there is no fee to enter the contest.

Good luck!
