Residents encouraged to tell their LakeXpress story, get prizes

RELEASE DATE: June 20, 2012

TAVARES – The Lake County Public Transportation Division is inviting residents to participate in the “Xpress Yourself - Tell Your LakeXpress Story” contest as LakeXpress, Lake County’s fixed-route public transportation service, continues the commemoration of its five-year anniversary.

The contest calls for residents who use LakeXpress to submit videos, photos, illustrations or essays about the benefits of LakeXpress and why others should use the service, for a chance to win various prizes.

Contestants will have the opportunity to win a 32-inch Phillips LCD television, donated by Transit Plus, an 8GB Apple iPod Nano, donated by Leesburg Partnership, or a Kodak Easyshare M532 digital camera, donated by RouteMatch. The deadline to submit entries is July 6 at 4 p.m.

“Everyone is encouraged to participate and submit their entries, and we look forward to awarding these great prizes,” said Ken Harley, Manager of the Lake County Public Transportation Division.

A panel of judges will evaluate entries and subsequently choose finalists based on specific criteria that include:

• Inclusion of a LakeXpress bus, shelter or logo in their entry
• A compelling story
• Portrays transit in a positive way
• The quality of the end product, and the ability of the video, photo, or written essay in attracting public attention

For more information about the contest, or for the official contest rules and conditions, call the Lake County Public Transportation Division at 352-742-6580, or visit www.ridelakexpress.com/xpressyourself.
