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
