How did you fare this February?! Did the ups and downs of the mercury confuse you? Sometimes feeling overly dressed, having to shed layers, then having to bundle back up an hour later? It was a weird season, but scientist prove wearing your Rise gear is the only way to feel properly dressed*
*This statement is not backed by any scientific research at all
To help encourage everyone to conquer the thermometer, we held a photo contest: “Where Did Your Wings Go?” showcasing all the amazing #WinterWarrior Risers rocking their Rise Wings wherever they went. And take it from me, they were truly inspiring and thoroughly BADASS!!
How did the contest work: “Post a photo on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter showing the Rise logo, Rise Wings, or Rise R and tag #WhereDidYourWingsGo. Each like on that post counts toward your total score”
So here are the winners and honorable mentions:
1st Place – Jim Aquino
This resident smiley Riser garnered 204 likes across Facebook and Instagram, winning first place and the “Super Extra Ultra Exclusive Rise Gear” grand prize.
2nd Place – Tiffany Judkins
Captain Bumblebee held on tight and got 140 likes total, holding down second place and winning the “Pretty Rare and still One Of A Kind Rise Gear” prize.
3rd Place – Pablo Duarte
Compadre Pablo brought his A-game and creativity and locked down 104 likes to round out the top three and earn the “Wow That’s so Cool and Unique Rise Gear” prize.
But the true mark of how much fun a contest ends up being, is seen in all the other submissions. So here’s a list of honorable mentions!!
Most Liked Wings – Helene Soleille
Freshest Wings – Sarah Schultz
Farthest Traveled Wings – Rachel Cochran
Most Dedicated Wings – Maggie Leebs
Give these awesome Risers a high-five and round of applause when you see them. There will be a brief crowning ceremony during the March Flash Rise Friday!
