Greetings fellow Edugeeks.
We've got a brand new competition coming up for March 2013 called
March Madness GriddleMarch Status Quote Muskrat BoxingBeat it OR Eat it! Or to give it its full (less catchy) title "We'll beat your quote, or you'll eat some sweeties".
The grand prize at the end of the month will be an awesome VeryPC Thinbook laptop, but you'll also have plenty of opportunities to win sweeties throughout the month of March. Here's how it works:
- You send us a copy of a recent quote for potential IT purchases for your school (genuine quote from other supplier dated 2013 required) to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Beat it or Eat it!" in the subject line.
- You get 1 entry into the grand prize draw.
- We try to give you a better price, which results in either:
- We "Beat it" and you have a great value quote to consider, plus we'll give you 2 extra entries into the prize draw, or
- We can't better the price and compensate for this shocking state of affairs by sending you some free sweeties. You "Eat it", but get no extra entries into the draw.
- You can send us as many quotes as you like, as long as they are all current genuine quotes and for different stuff each time.
- The competition is open to anyone on Edugeek who is involved in IT purchasing for a school/college/academy etc.
- We'll post weekly update videos in March to keep you interested and, if you're really lucky, there may even be the odd spot prize up for grabs.
- The grand prize draw will be made on Friday 29th March 2013 in the final video.

We can cater for pretty much any technical requirement by customising the specs of all our products, so if you need something with a vPro board for example, contact our sales guys and just tell them what you're after (you could even drop off a quote and get yourself involved in Beat it or Eat it while you're at it).
