In this week’s review, we’ll update you on our TV Makeover contest, show some love to our volunteers at Rogers TV for National Volunteer Week, and connect you with a quick guide to the latest LTE smartphones via Connected Magazine.
TV Makeover Contest
If you haven’t been following our TV Makeover contest, you’ve been missing out! Not only do you have the chance to win an amazing Samsung and Nextbox 2.0 prize pack valued at over $5,000, but the blast from the past TV sets in our entries are a lot of fun too!
Check out this beauty from Mary in Burlington, Ontario with rabbit ears and all! Or how about Jose’s from Ajax, Ontario with the old school crank knobs to change channels! If you think you can top these entries, then what are you waiting for? Just go here and upload a picture of your old TV set and write a 100 character description of why you need a TV makeover. Use the hashtag #TVMakeover to tweet, like, pin and share your entry with your friends.
National Volunteer Week
If you or someone you know is interested in television production, our volunteers are given hands-on training which provides both valuable experience and skills needed for a career in broadcasting or in other job sectors. Some of our positions include camera operator, floor director, production assistant, and makeup artist. For more insight, check out what some of our volunteers had to say about their experience volunteering at Rogers in our video section under “What I got from volunteering at Rogers TV.”
