Readers have the opportunity to win a Penn Station gift card for simply including the hashtag #nsfootball when they use Twitter this week.
The News-Sentinel will give away a $25 Penn Station gift card to someone who uses the #nsfootball hashtag when tweeting about high school football this week. #nsfootball is the official Twitter hashtag for Fort Wayne area high school football this season.
Anyone who tweets with the #nsfootball hashtag from now until Saturday night will be automatically placed into a raffle for the Penn Station gift card. In addition, the more an individual tweets with the #nsfootball hashtag, the more times their name will be submitted into the gift card raffle.
The winner of the Penn Station gift card will be announced Tuesday afternoon via The News-Sentinel Twitter account @newssentinel.
Along with being eligible for the Penn State gift card, individuals using the #nsfootball hashtag also may have their tweet selected to appear in the print edition of the newspaper. The News-Sentinel sports staff will select the best tweets with the #nsfootball hashtag during each Friday night's games and then will run those tweets in Monday's News-Sentinel.
The #nsfootball hashtag is one of several new online features The News-Sentinel is introducing this year with its high school football coverage to encourage online reader interaction. Among the other new additions includes the Fan Pick 'Em, which allows fans to predict the winners of the area games each week, and an area power poll solely determined by online voting.
