VTech’s Smartwatch Sweepstakes Lets Parents Show Off their Kids’ Coolness

VtechWatchVTech‘s Smartwatch Sweepstakes asks parents to share their children’s giant personalities for a chance to win a VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch. The sweepstakes, which is running through November 11, asks parents to submit photos and videos that capture their child’s personality, character, and antics.

At the end of each week, five Smartwatch Sweepstakes entries will be selected at random to receive a Kidizoom Smartwatch and will be highlighted as VTech’s Smartwatch Kids of the Week. To enter the sweepstakes, parents can visit www.vtechkids.com/smartwatchsweeps to submit a photo or video showcasing their child’s character and personality. They can also submit through Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #smartwatchsweeps.

The Kidizoom Smartwatch lets kids capture photos, add photo effects, record videos, and play built-in games on its 1.4-inch color touch screen. It is PC and MAC compatible for uploading photos, videos, and recorded voice files, and offers access to VTech’s Learning Lodge app store, where parents can download more games and displays. It is recommended for ages 4 and up.

“This is Retail” Video Contest Launches for Retailers

As part of its “Retail Means Jobs” campaign, an initiative by the National Retail Federation (NRF) that aims to raise awareness of the retail industry’s economic impact, NRF has launched the “This is Retail” video contest. “We’re on a hunt to find the best retail stories in America—from marketing geniuses to customer service superstars to small business owners,” said NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay in a press release.

To participate, retail employees or business owners submit a two-minute video that shares their retail story for a chance to win up to $25,000. NRF will accept video submissions from March 5-16. A panel of retail executives will narrow the videos down to the top 20, and finalists will be prominently featured on RetailMeansJobs.com. The winners will be chosen based on votes, and announced during NRF’s Washington Leadership Conference in May. For more information, visit www.retailmeansjobs.com/contest.
