Voting for the Serco People’s Choice Award
Voting has started and votes will be collected all thru April – and through May 4, 2022. The winner is announced live at the end of Tech Nite after the votes have been tallied.
Use the special hashtag #SVTCPC22 to make a post that also includes the name of your favorite nominee(s) – and we will collect each post and display it. Humans (not bots) can vote however often they want, as long as it’s done manually. Follow along over the month of April (and all through the evening of the event) to see who is ahead. The winner will be announced at the end of Tech Nite.
This is another chance for the nominees to win an award – in the People’s Choice Award category (PCA). ALL nominees are candidates, and anyone (only humans; no automation) can vote for a favorite.
Who can vote?
Can a colleague vote? Yes. Friend? Yes. Grandma? Yes. The fan club – yes. Everyone can vote however often they want. (We are displaying the votes as they come in. Scroll down to see what our social wall looks like RIGHT NOW.) However, it has to be a human who votes manually, no bots.
Where to vote:
- craft a public message on Twitter or Instagram (using your acct, set to ‘public’),
- place a post on our SVTC Facebook page [https://www.facebook.com/SVTechCouncil (–> “create a post”)
- create a direct post on the bottom of the “social wall” (where the posts are gathered: https://my.walls.io/SVTCPC22?create-post=true) and it appears immediately.
Pictures and graphics CAN be included in the post.
Update: we published instructions on 4/7/2022 that are outdated and included info for “Talk to Walter” (which uses FB Messenger) – this functionality is no longer supported. Our apologies.
