Do you think you have what it takes to be a hero in just 10 seconds? Lenovo, in conjunction with Microsoft Corporation is launching the EExtraordinary 10-Second Hero Contest in recognition of its Enhanced Experience 2.0 (EE 2.0) for Windows 7 program, which allows select Lenovo PCs to boot up in as little as 10 seconds. The contest calls on “doers” in countries around the world to submit 150 words explaining a good deed they or an organization they know of accomplished in 10 seconds. Lenovo will award $50,000 to a charity of choice based upon the person or organization who made the most significant impact in the same amount of time it takes to boot up a Lenovo PC with Enhanced Experience 2.0.
Consumers, ages 18 years and older can visit the contest site and submit a 150 word description of how they, an organization or someone they know has performed a good deed in 10 seconds or less. Twenty-four finalists from around the world will be selected by a panel of experts and featured on the contest website. The public will be invited to vote for its favourite submission on the contest website in mid-September with the grand prize winner announced at the end of the month. Lenovo will donate $50,000 to the grand prize winner’s charity of choice.
The Lenovo EExtraordinary 10-Second Hero Contest is open to residents of The United States, Australia, Philippines, Malaysia, The United Kingdom, India, Canada (excl: Quebec), Thailand, Indonesia, Turkey, Poland, The Czech Republic, Germany, Spain, Mexico, Colombia and Argentina.
