‘Connect Montgomery Alliance’ of County’s Cable Stations Holding Series of Online Challenges That Could Result in Prizes for Competitors

The Connect Montgomery Alliance (CoMo), the organization composed of County's government and public access cable stations, has put together a series of online challenges that will allow residents to reconnect with people and places in the County. The social media contests, that will be conducted each month through October, will include drawings for monthly prizes and giveaways.

CoMo will present the series of challenges via the Instagram account @connectmontgomery. Winners will receive limited edition attire and qualify to be entered in random drawings to win prizes of higher value, like Apple watches, Sonos speakers, Yeti coolers and more.

The campaign will encourage residents to learn about—or get reacquainted with—local businesses, restaurants, parks and other public spaces and engage Instagram. Details regarding rules, regulations, winners and upcoming contests are available at

The theme for the contest that is currently underway is “National Relaxation Day.” At the @connectmontgomery Instagram site, residents can look for the National Relaxation Day post, "like" it and tag two people. For an extra entry, competitors can tag their favorite place to relax. Residents can also share the post to their Instagram story while tagging @connectmontgomery for yet another chance to win. This contest ends Aug. 26.
