Today we’re launching a Twitter contest to help spread the word about the importance of transparency in foreign assistance. To learn more about MFAN’s push for transparent, accountable foreign assistance, check out our new microsite here.
For this contest, we want you to tweet a short comment on why you think aid transparency is important. The best response will win USAID Administrator Raj Shah’s top five books on development. MFAN’s Co-Chairs will judge the responses and select one grand prize winner; five other semi-finalists will receive one of Administrator Shah’s top books. Here are the details:
- You MUST include @ModernizeAid and our designated contest hashtag #Aidtransparency in your response
- Tweets will be judged Monday-Friday from 10am EST – 6pm EST
- Semi-finalists will be chosen on Tuesdays and Thursdays; our grand prize winner will be announced the final day of the contest—June 29
- Prizes will only be mailed within the United States
Before you get started please take a look at Twitter contest rules to ensure fair play.
We hope you can take part in the contest and create some momentum for aid transparency. Happy tweeting!
