We had 26 entries over the short time we held the contest, and I was surprised on how many great (not good, GREAT) entries we got. So I compiled them all, pared down the ones that didn’t follow the rules and was left several really good ones. Then I asked an impartial person which one was the best.
Congratulations goes out to Don Heffren (@trexicano). Reebok will be sending out your t-shirt as soon as I can get your address to them.
Here’s the winning Tweet. You gotta hand it him, he’s raising his boy right!
Here’s the rest of the entries in no particular order. All of them are awesome in their own right. Thanks to all who entered.
