Olympics Content Ideas
I frequently get great ideas from this community (thank you!) so I wanted to share one of our own: We celebrated the Summer Olympics by holding a points based competition with various ways to participate (see below). Top 3 point holders received the "medals" and gift cards as well as a few runners up. It was super interesting to see all of the Olympics connections (who knew we had so many?!) and to learn which co-workers were super passionate about certain sports. Was really great for engagement and connectivity. Currently trying to figure out what to do for the upcoming Olympics so if you have any ideas please share!
My Olympics Connection (5 points)
Do you have an Olympics story to tell? Maybe you attended the Olympic Games in another country and can share what that experience was like, or perhaps you have a connection to someone who will be competing in Tokyo. Maybe you are an athlete who almost made it. Get us your story (a few sentences plus one picture or a few paragraphs with multiple pictures - all will count) by Sunday, July 25 and receive 5 points. We’ve already got a few in the works. Let us hear yours as well. We will take your story and post it on Answers. We're happy to help pull it together, and we promise to make it great.
Aspiring Olympians (2 points)
Submit a picture, newspaper clipping, or short video of an aspiring Olympian in your family - you, your parents, your partner or your kids - along with a sentence or two about the Olympic sport you were sure you would compete in someday. Be creative! We will post these as a slideshow in our Photo of the Day section beginning Monday, July 26.
How I Celebrate the Olympics (2 points)
Do you, your family and/or your friends have some great Olympics traditions that you hold near and dear that you would be willing to share with us? Slack or email us a description of how you celebrate the Olympics (pictures and short video clips are, of course, encouraged!) and we'll give you 2 points. We'll create posts with the submissions received and will publish them throughout the Games.
