In honor of National Backpack Awareness Day, Microsoft is giving away a Surface Pro 3. Why, you ask? National Backpack Awareness day is a way for the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) to raise awareness of the negative impact your heavy bag can have on your health.
If your backpack weighs more than 10% of your bodyweight, you may want to look into a lighter load as it can significantly prevent any damage to your back. Also, it may be time to look into best carrying practices.
The Surface Pro 3 is Microsoft’s way of helping out your back. It can replace heavier tech you currently lug around. Additionally, it can get rid of textbooks and notebooks you are forced to carry. How can you win? Simply take an original picture showing why you need to “lighten your load,” follow Surface on Twitter or Facebook, and then post your picture with the hashtags #LightenMyLoad #SurfacePro3 and #Contest.
You will be judged 25% on originality, 50% on adherence to contest theme, and 25% on composition. Oh, and you have to be a resident of the United States and 18 years old. Find out more details here, and good luck!Further reading: Microsoft, Surface Pro 3
