UPDATE: Congratulations to Shane Donaldson from the University of Rhode Island!

It’s Christmas in March (and not just because of the late snow some of us have seen last week)!

You might not know it, but I always try to use the leverage I have in higher ed to get some cool prizes for you – that’s my way to say thanks for your time and support.

As a result, this week, you’re getting a chance to win a free pass for the higher ed track of the J.Boye conference taking place in Philaldephia on May 4, 2011. And, let me tell you this is a very nice prize as the pass cost is $995!

This 1-day conference will feature several speakers from the US, Finland and Brazil – all will be sharing great insights on important issues including web governance, social media and analytics.

Here is the conference track program:

  • Social Media and Information Strategy by Bob Boiko, University of Washington
  • It’s the End of the Web as We Know It (And I Feel Fine!) by Mark Greenfield, University at Buffalo
  • Websites & Brand Strength: A Guide to Achieving a 90% Positive Customer Rating by Bob Johnson, Bob Johnson Consulting
  • Overcoming Limitations – Web Analytics for Higher Education by Shelby Thayer, PSU Outreach
  • What to feed your Search Engine – The evolution of search analytics at HBS by Ravi Mynampaty, Harvard Business School
  • Building a brand for a newcomer: from nowhere to world-class stature by Tapio Hedman, Aalto University, Finland
  • Interdependency of Search and Social to Create Engaging Strategies by Martha Gabriel, Business School Sao Paulo

So, how can you get a chance to win the free pass?

This is very simple.

  • First, you need to work for an institution
  • Then, just post in a comment below a link to your favorite higher ed facebook page (it can be yours or a page from another institution) along with a sentence explaining what’s special about this page.

I’ll draw the winner among the entries next Tuesday, March 22 at noon ET Thursday, March 24 at 3PM ET (sorry but I forgot I was on webinar duty this week. The name will be posted on this blog and I’ll email the winner as well.
