You love data. You love the way it helps you and your organization make better decisions. You love the way it creates real insight into trends that are shaping our world. Plus, data is just plain cool; what’s not to love about that?

We love data too. That’s why we’re excited #SQLDataWins is running for a second year! #SQLDataWins is a sweepstakes that celebrates data and your ability to use it in solving problems and helping your organization grow. Starting May 13th, you’ll help us complete some memes we can all relate to for a chance to win great swag.

Visit @SQLServer every Monday for the next four weeks to check out a new meme and select the answer that you think fits best. Tweet your response no later than 11:59 PM Pacific Time on Thursday each week. Be sure to use the handy auto-generated tweet, including #SQLDataWins and the original image, for a chance to win.

Hot tip: Check back every week for a new meme!

FAQs

How do I enter?

It’s easy! Follow these three simple steps by Thursday at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time:

  1. Visit SQL Server on Twitter.
  2. Find this week’s #SQLDataWins meme (hint: it will usually be our pinned tweet) and select an answer to complete the meme.
  3. Tweet the auto-generated confirmation message from your own account. Make sure your answer, #SQLDataWins, and the original meme image link are included in your tweet.

Am I eligible to win?

You need to be:

  • A legal resident of the 50 U.S. states (and the District of Columbia)
  • 18 years of age or older
  • If you’re under 18, you need to have consent of a parent or legal guardian

You can’t be:

  • An employee or a family member of an employee of Microsoft Corporation and its subsidiaries, affiliates, advertising agencies, and sweepstakes parties.

How many winners are there each week?

We’ll randomly select 10 lucky winners each week.

How do I find out if I won?

Check your mentions on Fridays! We’ll reply to the week’s winners every Friday. Be sure to DM us within 72 hours so we can confirm that you’re eligible and get your address to send you your prize!

What can I win?

You can win some sweet #SQLDataWins swag and other goodies including great T-shirts, coffee mugs, a transitive dice game, and a magnetic poetry kit.

Can I enter every week to win?

Yeah, go for it!

If I’ve already won once, can I win again?

You sure can. That’s what we call an #overachiever, and we’re impressed.

What if I go back and answer a past week’s question? Am I entered to win this week?

Glad you love answering meme questions! But no, you are not entered to win this week’s sweepstakes if you answer a past question. You must answer the current week’s question to be entered to win that week.

Can I enter to win more than once per week?

No, you can only enter to win once per week. You can use #SQLDataWins as much as you want, but multiple tweets within the weekly entry period will not increase your chances of winning.
