Attention all Provoans! I just found out that the first annual National #CityHallSelfie Day is this Monday, August 15th. So mark your calendar, charge your cameras and smartphones, and get ready to win some prizes! People from all over the United States will be snapping pictures and showcasing their City Hall on social media.
You can participate in this new holiday by posting your #cityhallselfie on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, or Twitter. (We even created a geofilter on snapchat just for the occasion!) Come on over to the Provo City Center (located on 351 W Center Street) any time on Monday. Take a selfie with the building in the background and feel free to be creative and explore the campus. Provo’s City Center has a few different entrances and courtyards that would look great in your selfie.
ELGL will be giving out prizes all day long. Everyone who participates will receive an ELGL coozie. You’ll also have a chance to win a selfie stick, Treat Yo Self mug, Pawnee ringer t-shirt, Indiana names t-shirt, and RIP Harambe t-shirt. They are also offering #CityHallSelfie award trophies in the following categories:
