Meijer and Johnsonville Sausage are giving their customers an opportunity to get their creative juices flowing – and a chance to win a football fan's ultimate tailgate package – with a football-themed poetry contest, entitled "Meijer Pigskin Poetry." The contest invites participants to go to the Meijer Facebook page, www.facebook.com/meijer , and create a fun football-themed poem in 30 words or less through February 4, the eve of the Super Bowl.
Kevin Brown, chief marketing officer for the Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer, believes – this provides a fun and unique way for our customers to showcase their creative prose through digital and social channels. Plus, we know this is right up their alley with things they love: Facebook, football and grilling.
Voting is available through Facebook and the top 10 vote-getters will receive the grand prize package, including a portable grill, gourmet grilling kit, grill mitt, apron, a variety of Johnsonville bratwurst and a flat screen TV.
