In order to participate in the Photo-A-Day Challenge for Better Hearing and Speech Month, you must first have an Instagram account. You can sign up for free at http://instagram.com or on the app on your device. You cannot upload images from the web (Instagram won't let you for some reason), just from a phone or tablet. Then, make sure that your profile is not set to private so we can follow you to see your images. If it is private, we will not be able to see your entries. Next, look at the image above and post an image for each day throughout the month of May 2015 within the theme of that particular day. Make sure in the description that you use #instaBHSM in order for it to count for our giveaway. If you want points towards ASHA's "Speaking Up for Communication" social media Contest, that is a completely different contest (and you have to sign up separately for that one on ASHA's website). However, you can also use the hashtag of #BHSMContest for your image to count for that one as well. Make sure to use both so you get points for each contest!
Be sure to follow Home Sweet Speech Room and Consonantly Speaking on Instagram so that you don't miss the winner being announced!The person who most consistently posts images throughout May corresponding to the themes will win a prize basket! In the case of a tie, Random.org will be used to randomly select a winner! Then, that person will be contacted via Instagram and the winner will also be posted on both of our Instagram accounts on June 1st, 2015 to give us their mailing address so that we may send the package their way!

This challenge will run from 12:00 am May 1st, 2015 to 11:59 pm May 31st, 2015 in Eastern Standard Time. It is an Instagram-only challenge, so posts on other social media will not be counted (that doesn't mean that you can't share them elsewhere, we just won't double-count or count posts from other social media).
We look forward to seeing your submissions throughout the month to raise speech-language pathology awareness and share speech-language therapy ideas!
