Become a fan of MPI and join the World Education Congress 2011 event.
foursquare Challenge: The game this year is that as you check in at different activities like The Big Deal, Rendezvous, RISE Awards ceremony or even The HIVE and Blitz! that you'll not only see who else is there, but also find clues in the tips section of the app.
The clues will actually be words that will create a "winning phrase". Once you have the winning phrase on Tuesday, July 26, you'll need to check in at the HIVE for the official #WEC11 tweetup at 1 p.m. and on your check-in comment with the winning phrase. Ottawa Tourism will draw a name from all correct entries for a grand prize. Additional prizes will also be awarded to tweet up participants.
