Kentucky Residents: Enter Our #TurboKYsweeps Droid Turbo Giveaway

If turbo-charged activity is your name, we’ve got your game...especially if you don’t want to interrupt your adventures to re-charge your smartphone.

Beginning today, November 17, Kentucky residents can enter our #TurboKYsweeps sweepstakes to win a free Motorola Droid Turbo smartphone, which has a hefty 3900 mAh battery that lasts up to two days with typical use.

The global-ready Turbo, exclusive to Verizon Wireless, is a 4G LTE smartphone with a 5.2” screen, a 21MP camera and a turbo-fast 2.7 GHz, Quad Core processor that lets users launch and run multiple apps all at the same time. The Turbo also offers simultaneous voice and data, so users can text, update email or use GPS mapping directions while also on a call. The Motorola Turbo Charger included in the box gives users up to 8 hours of additional battery life in just 15 minutes.

How do you enter the sweepstakes? Create a short video explaining what you could do in 48 hours if you didn’t have to stop and plug in your mobile phone! You can post to Instagram, Vine, YouTube, Vimeo or any other video hosting platform that will allow you to share the link to the content. Videos can be of any length, but we recommend short and sweet! Here's some inspiration from our friend Chris Diaz from WQNU-FM in Louisville:

Why should you enter? "The Turbo is outdoor-ready for Kentucky’s virtually unlimited adventure options,” said Lauren Love-Wright, president of the Kentucky/Indiana/Michigan region for Verizon Wireless. “Busy moms and dads planning for the holidays also will appreciate not having to plug the Turbo back in after letting their kids play their favorite games in between tasks and trips to activities.”

The Turbo Charged Kentucky sweepstakes runs from November 17-23 and is open exclusively to Kentucky residents. Entry points can be earned by:

  • Following me, @VZWTrevor, on Twitter (mandatory, equal to one entry).
  • Posting a link to your video as a comment below in the Rafflecopter widget.
  • Tweeting about the contest once each day from November 17-23 (optional, equal to two entries per day), using the #TurboKYsweeps hashtag.

We will use Rafflecopter to randomly select the winner, who I will announce on Twitter on November 24.

Complete Turbo Charged Kentucky sweepstakes rules are included below in the Rafflecopter widget.

Have fun, and good luck!
