BillionGraves July Leaderboard Contest! 2019

I appreciate this contest by BillionGraves – BillionGraves July Leaderboard Contest! 2019 https://blog.billiongraves.com/2019/07/01/july-leaderboard-contest/. There are several ways to win, including a random drawing for those who make one of the Leaderboards, but don’t make the Top 15 Photo Uploads or Top 15 Transcribers.

Because you’re so awesome . . . well, you are! We appreciate all the photos you take and all the transcriptions you make! So here’s another leaderboard contest for you . . .

The top 15 photographers and the top 15 transcribers during the month of July will get a best-selling Nalgene 32-ounce water bottle OR a $10 Amazon gift card.

But wait, there’s more! Everyone else on the leaderboard will automatically be entered in a random drawing. So 20 more of you will win the same terrific water bottle or a $10 Amazon gift card!

Get on the Board!

Put your team on the scoreboard, or rather put yourself on the BillionGraves’ leaderboard! So just how do you do that?

Well, any BillionGraves photographer or transcriber who ranks in the top 50 from around the globe will show up on the leaderboard. It’s updated daily as new records come in.

Where can you find the leaderboard? Go to the BillionGraves website and look on the left side of the main page. You’ll see a box that says “leaderboard.”

There’s even a map there that shows which areas of the world are taking the most photos. Guess who is currently in the lead?

Sorry, I’m not telling. Go check it out here!

So, About the Prize Already . . .

It’s a Nalgene Tritan 32-ounce wide mouth BPA-free water bottle.

This. Water. Bottle. The product description says it is: “The original. The trailblazer. The Sir Edmund of water bottles. If you’re looking for a water bottle that will keep you well hydrated, hold up against bangs, bumps, and drops, and not leak a single drop ever, then the iconic 32-ounce wide mouth is your water bottle. There’s a reason why we haven’t changed its design in decades—because it works (extremely well).”

Take it with You to the Cemetery!

Did you know that a little water poured over the face of a gravestone can often make it more legible? It’s true! Try it. Maybe even try it by using one of these hot cool new water bottles!

Or use it at the cemetery to stay hydrated. Or to water your dog. Or to start a water fight. Whatever. You just gotta have one!

Keep it Next to You While You Transcribe!

You transcribers know how it is . . . you’re thirsty, but there’s just one more gravestone to finish. And then one more. And then an hour later you’re still thirsty.

Get on the leaderboard and win one of these great water bottles then your transcribing troubles will be over! At least the wet kind.
