Back-to-School Promotion and Social Giveaway

Back2School

Education has evolved into a digital learning platform. Kids are being sent home with URLs to visit rather than books to read. And it isn’t just high school and college, but the younger grades as well. As education has evolved, homework has evolved and that is just the point Great Plains Communications wants to highlight with our Back-to-School promotion.

Sign up for high-speed Internet service and receive:

  • FREE Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet with Alexa
  • FREE Month of Internet Service
  • Sign up for any new service and receive FREE Installation!

 

And don’t miss our social media giveaway going on this week! While we understand that tech might be replacing books, teachers are still the ones guiding our children each day. To highlight those teachers, and for a chance to win an Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition tablet with a blue kid-proof case, follow the instructions below:

  • Like our Facebook page
  • Find and like the post including the graphic above on our Facebook page
  • Comment on the post: The name of your favorite teacher from school and why they made an impact on you

The giveaway ends Wednesday, September 26 and we will announce our two winners here on our blog Thursday, September 27.

If you have any questions over our Back-to-School promotion or would like to sign up now, please call our Customer Response Center at 1-855-853-1483.

Wifi Christmas Social Giveaway Winner

Help us in congratulating our Wifi Christmas Social Giveaway Winner, Sara Nichols of Eddyville, NE!  When asked why she shops online, she responded, “I shop online because I hate dealing with large crowds and I like finding the best deal while sitting in my chair rather than searching the stores.” A feeling we can all probably relate to. By sharing this information and liking the Great Plains Communications Facebook page, Sara has won a $250 Amazon.com gift card.

Congrats to Our Shark Week Giveaway Winner!

Help us in congratulating our Shark Week Giveaway winner, Malia Nemecek of Scribner, NE! As part of our cable channel, Discovery’s famous Shark Week, Great Plains Communications decided to join in the fun with our own giveaway. By liking our Facebook page, Facebook post, and commenting their favorite shark, viewers could enter to win a Shark Navigator® Lift-Away® Pro Vacuum.

Malia commented that her favorite shark is the Tiger Shark.

 

Here are some interesting facts from Discovery about some of the top picks:

Great white sharks are picky eaters and can determine after one bite whether or not the meal will satisfy their nutritional needs.

In native Hawaiian mythology, tiger shark eyeballs are considered to have magic powers.

Hammerhead sharks’ oddly shaped heads, called cephalofoils, are equipped with electrical sensors, making them superior hunters.

The goblin shark lives along outer continental shelves and underwater mountain ranges.

 

Again, we would like to congratulate Malia Nemecek and thank everyone who entered our Shark Week Giveaway!

2017 Shark Week on Discovery


It’s Shark Week on Discovery! The week was kicked-off by Michael Phelps racing a CGI shark, losing by just a couple seconds. From there, the excitement was on. Tonight, you can catch Great White Serial Killer Lives: Sharkopedia Edition at 7 PM as “Researchers try to unravel the mysterious reasons behind great white shark attacks happening in the same place, every two years.” Find the full schedule here on Discovery’s website.

 

Interesting Shark Facts:

  • Sharks’ sightlines span nearly 360 degrees.
  • Over 400 shark species are in the world’s oceans today. They vary in shape, but share similar characteristics.
  • 6 years before Steven Spielberg’s Jaws, Burt Reynolds starred in Shark. Real sharks were used in filming, and a stuntman was killed.
  • Pygmy sharks can make their own light.
  • Sharks can heat their eyes using a special organ next to a muscle in their eye socket, allowing them to continue hunting in frigid waters.

 

Great Plains Communications wants to take part in the Shark Week fun, and to do that we have created a Facebook giveaway! From July 24-July 30, you can go to our Facebook page and find the post with the graphic above. There you will need to like our Facebook page, like the post and comment your favorite shark species to be entered to win a Shark Navigator Lift-Away Professional Vacuum!
