Mariners’ Museum’s Annual Summer Instagram Contest Is Underway
Submitted by Jenna Dill

FindBoat imageNEWPORT NEWS, VA. – After two successful summers, The Mariners' Museum and Park is bringing back its summer social media contest, #FindtheBoat, on Friday, June 15. Guests will have the opportunity to win weekly prizes valued at $100, along with the grand prize, a $1,500 Visa gift card.

Every Friday, beginning June 15 and concluding July 27, the Museum will post a clue on Instagram leading guests to a boat, or boat model, currently on display. Guests decipher the clue to discover the location of the boat, then snap a selfie with it for a chance to win all the fantastic prizes.

To enter the contests, guests must share a selfie of themselves with the boat on Instagram using the hashtag #FindtheBoat. The shared photo will serve as one entry to the weekly prize drawings for the grand prize, runner-up, and third-place prizes. Whoever is the first to find the boat each week will receive two entries for FindBoat2 imagethe grand prizes. The runner-up prize is a $500 package from Tradition Brewing Company, and the third place prize is a $250 Peninsula Town Center gift card. Tradition Brewing Company and Peninsula Town Center graciously donated these prizes.

Guests are encouraged to play every week to increase their chances of winning. The Museum is offering $1 admission now through Labor Day, so guests can play for a very minimal price, or for free if you're a Museum Member. Clues will be released at 10 a.m. every Friday on Instagram with submissions due the following Friday by 9 a.m. The weekly winner will be announced by 12 p.m. each Friday. The last weekly winner will be selected on Friday, August 3.

For more information about the contest and how to play,  please visit the Museum's website at  Clues, prizes, and weekly winners will be listed on the website and updated every Friday. Weekly winners will also be announced on Instagram.
