We received so many fun photos in our Back to School Photo Contest that we don’t have the heart to simply throw names into a hat to select our winners. These images are meant to be shared and enjoyed! So we’ve created a quick poll and are asking YOU to help us choose.
We’ve lined up four fun prizes from Deer Park Town Center to help you either a.) enjoy some well-deserved pampering or b.) add some of the season’s hottest new merchandise to your student’s back-to-school wardrobe:
- First Place: A one hour massage and facial from Avalon Salon & Day Spa
- Second Place: $150 to spend at American Eagle Outfitters
- Third Place: $75 to spend at Buckle
- Fourth Place: $50 to spend at The Gap
You’ll find the poll to cast your vote below all images entered into our contest. (To cut to the chase and cast your vote immediately, CLICK HERE.) The four entries that receive the most votes will each win one of the four prizes. We’ll leave the poll open until the end of the day this Thursday, September 17th and we’ll announce the winners on Friday, September 18th. After our contest’s conclusion, we’ll also share a special video message from Barrington 220 Schools Superintendent, Dr. Brian Harris!
You’re welcome to vote for as many images as you’d like, but you can only vote once. Good luck!
