ButtonQuest: Your Chance to Win an iPad at SXSW!

The 15 Different Buttons for ButtonQuest at SXSW

We’re off to Austin tomorrow for SXSW and with that comes a lot of big news, some we’ve already told you about such as the iPhone™ app (my.SXSW), the BBQ we’re having at The Salt Lick on Sunday and the panel MapQuest is participating in. But now, the drum roll…during the Interactive Festival we will also have a sweepstakes where three lucky winners will receive an Apple® iPad™!

YOUR MISSION?: Find as many MapQuest Star buttons as you can.

WHAT IS IT?: Play MapQuest ButtonQuest and earn entries to win one of three Apple iPads!

HOW DO YOU ENTER?:
MapQuest will be handing out 15 unique MapQuest star buttons over the three days of the SXSW Interactive Festival. Once you have five different buttons, go to our booth (Booth #401) and fill out an entry form. If you get 10 different buttons, we’ll give you two entries. Find all 15 buttons and you’ll get three entries!

WHEN IS IT?: During the SXSW Interactive Conference from Saturday, March 13 – Monday, March 15. Drawing will be held for all three iPads at 3:00 pm on Monday, March 15. As a heads-up, you must be an attendee of the SXSW Interactive conference in order to play.

WHERE ARE THE BUTTONS?: They’re everywhere! Find the MapQuest team, dressed in red shirts and red hats, at various locations around Austin throughout the three days of the Interactive conference. To get you going, we’ll have a different button offered each day in the MapQuest booth – so stop by!

HOW DO I FIND THE MAPQUEST TEAM?:
We’ll be tweeting real time letting you know where we’ll be next. To help you out we’ve created a schedule and map of our button handout locations but there will be SEVERAL other handouts you’ll only find out about via Twitter. We also have secret button carriers – so make sure to keep tuned in by following us: @MapQuestTech and @MapQuest. We’ll be using the hashtag #buttonquest to announce all the locations throughout the Interactive Festival.

So, if you’re headed to SXSW this weekend, take a stab at ButtonQuest for a chance to win an Apple iPad!
