Show MARTA your talents to win a HD camera

Posted By on Tue, Jun 8, 2010 at 12:00 PM

In celebration of the "Dump the Pump" Day on June 17, MARTA — in cooperation with the American Public Transit Association — wants to know why riders think the transit agency matters to the environment. Simply record a three-minute video or hammer out a 300-word blog post about that very topic and you could find yourself with a nifty gadget that captures souls. (There are some rules you'll have to follow, which you can check out by downloading the required PDF entry form. And if you're looking for inspiration, check out this section on MARTA's website.)

Both video and blog categories are divided into two age groups: contestants aged 13 to 17 and those over the age of 18. First place winner in each category wins a Flip Ultra HD Camera and tripod, one Breeze Card good for one year, and two one-year passes to the Georgia Aquarium, the contest's main sponsor. Second prize is a $50 Best Buy gift card, one Breeze Card good for one month, and one one-year pass to the aquarium. Third prize is a set of steak knives. Fourth prize is you're fired. Hit the bricks, pal, 'cause you are going OUT. (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

Act fast, because the deadline is Monday, June 14. Winners will be announced on June 17 at a MARTA headquarters event marking "Dump the Pump" Day.
