"Best Thing I Learned at PASS Summit" Contest
Tell us the story of what you've learned at a PASS Summit and you could win free registration or free hotel at Summit 2009!
2009 marks the 10th anniversary of PASS, and to celebrate, we’re launching a contest for all PASS Summit devotees.
We’ve heard you talk about all the great stuff you learned at a PASS Summit that more than paid for your attendance. Praise new technical know-how that was worth its weight in gold. Or rave about awesome sessions and phenomenal speakers. Now’s your chance to turn talk into treasure!
Enter the “Best Thing I Learned at PASS” Contest, and you could win great prizes, including a free Pre/Post-Conference session registration or a full set of PASS Summit 2008 session recording DVDs. One First Prize winner will even get to choose either a free PASS Summit 2009 registration or 4 nights free hotel at PASS Summit 2009! A total of 10 prizes are available.
