DENVER, CO - Archstone - a leader in apartment investment, development and operations - announced today the start of its Find Your Fit Story Contest. The contest challenges apartment seekers and residents to submit stories depicting what healthy living means to them in their communities for a chance to win one of four Apple iPads. As part of Archstone's Find Your Fit Leasing Expo, which will run from March 24 through 27, the contest is open to all residents and apartment seekers living at or near any of its apartments for rent nationwide.
To enter the Find Your Fit Story Contest, apartment seekers and residents will email their stories with photos to firstname.lastname@example.org between March 1 and March 22. (See official contest rules for details.) Stories and photos could feature a workout program in one of Archstone's world-class fitness centers or a daily jogging routine along the beach. Others might focus on grabbing a healthy bite to eat at a local restaurant near their Archstone apartment home.
"Our apartment communities are located in some of the most desirable neighborhoods in amazing cities across the country," said Donald Davidoff, Archstone's group vice president of strategic systems and head of marketing. "Many of them are close to the beach, within walking distance of healthy dining destinations and around the corner from scenic running, hiking and biking trails. It's convenient to stay active and eat healthy in these incredible locations. And for many of our residents, their healthy living activities are memorable experiences they look forward to enjoying every day. This contest gives them the opportunity to share those experiences and, of course, a chance to win an iPad."
After the March 22 deadline, a panel of judges will select the top 10 stories and post them on ArchstoneViews.com, where the public will get the opportunity to vote on their favorite stories during the leasing expo. The four entries with the most votes when the contest closes at 8 p.m. ET on March 27 will win an iPad.
But Find Your Fit Contest entrants won't be the only customers receiving a chance to win a free iPad. Customers who walk into any Archstone apartment community nationwide March 24 through 27 will be able to enter the Find Your Fit Leasing Expo Sweepstakes. (No purchase necessary. See official sweepstakes rules for details.) Two winners will be selected daily and announced after 8 p.m. ET on www.ArchstoneViews.com.
