Do you attend college in the Northeast and get the winter blues when it’s overcast and cold? Sounds like you could be in need of a Wintervention. Well, you’re in luck—the L.L.Bean Bootmobile is visiting select college campuses across the region for just that reason.
What, exactly, is a Wintervention, you say? Simply put, students in need of an overhaul of their winter outerwear and footwear, or those who’d like gear for an outdoor activity, will have a chance to win a prize package from L.L.Bean.
Here’s how to enter: If you’re a student at one of the schools listed below, or if you know a student at one of these schools who needs a Wintervention, tweet @LLBean with #Wintervention and why you/he/she should win. Be sure to include your college’s Twitter handle, too.
But that’s not the only way to enter. You can also submit your entry by stopping by the Bootmobile on campus. Here are some of the prize packages we’ll be giving away:
- $50 Gift Card
- $150 Gift Card
- $100 Gift Card
- $200 Gift Card
Here are the official Wintervention rules.
On Friday, October 12, the Bootmobile will be kicking off its college tour at the University of New Hampshire. It’ll be visiting ten colleges over the course of its tour—9 of our choosing and the tenth picked by you. Stay tuned for more details.
Here’s the schedule so far. We’ll confirm dates soon.
Friday, 10/12 – University of New Hampshire
