Tweet, Post Photos of Healthier Living in NJ for New #HealthyNJContest
May 1, 2017

From now until June 2, the New Jersey YMCA State Alliance (NJYMCA) encourages New Jersey residents to share photos of how they are creating opportunities to live a healthier life for a chance to win $500 for the local nonprofit of their choice.

The #HealthyNJContest showcases on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook how communities across New Jersey are making health a shared value, creating healthier, more equitable communities and working in cross-sector collaboration to improve well-being. All submitted photos will be considered for inclusion on the NJYMCA website, and three entries will earn a $500 grant for the NJ nonprofits tagged within those social media posts.

Examples of eligible photos include images of a ribbon-cutting on an affordable housing project, a group volunteering to clean up the neighborhood park, or shopping at a farmers’ market.

Photos posted to Instagram, Twitter or Facebook are eligible, as long as each post meets these criteria:

  • uses the #HealthyNJContest tag
  • mentions the New Jersey YMCA State Alliance using @njymca
  • includes the name or social media handle of the New Jersey nonprofit you would like to nominate for one of the $500 prizes
