Celebrate Towel Day and Geek Pride Day #competition - Geek Parents

* Estimated reading time: 1min *

The 25th of May is an important date for geeks, a triumvirate of geek celebrations are all scheduled into our iCals on this day. Not only is it Towel Day, a day chosen by fans to mark the passing of  Douglas Adams, author of The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy but it’s also Geek Pride Day, a day for us to claim our right to be geeks and of course it’s the date of the premier of the first Star Wars film in 1977.

All around the world this important date is being marked in a variety of ways and in dual celebration of Geek Pride Day and Towel Day, the kind folks at Powwownow have given me some cool prizes to give away.

Up for grabs are:

42 Utility towel

The 42 Utility Towel, about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitch hiker can have and:

The Space Child's Mother Goose by Frederick Winsor and Marian Parry

a copy of The Space Child’s Mother Goose, a classic geeky reworking of traditional nursery rhymes.

If you want to enter – and why on Earth wouldn’t you? – follow these incredibly simple instructions:

  1. Follow @powwownow on twitter
  2. Follow @geekparents on twitter
  3. Tweet this: “I want to win some #towelday and #geek day gear. Follow @powwownow and @geekparents, RT and read this to enter! http://bit.ly/inDNUm”

A winner will be chosen at random on Thursday morning.

If you don’t win, DON’T PANIC. There will be more opportunities to win throughout Geek Day, with other blogs running similar competitions. I’ll update you as they go live via twitter.
