Take Ruby Reader Wherever You Roam!


Take Ruby Reader Wherever You Roam!

Has Ruby Reader been spotted in your area? In November 2017, School Nutrition magazine staff announced that for the fourth consecutive year we would host a contest to find out where the magazine’s popular mascot has been roaming—and to gain your feedback about what SN articles and ideas resonate.

If Ruby hasn’t made her way into your cafeteria or office, don’t worry…there is still some time to participate and be eligible for the special prize drawing. All entries must be received by School Nutrition no later than Friday, January 26, 2018! Here’s how to enter:

  1. Cut out the full-page Ruby in School Nutrition’s November 2017 issue. Tape her to a piece of cardboard or run her through a laminating machine, so that she does not tear with handling.
  2. Take pictures that include Ruby! Last year she participated in training workshops, toured foreign countries, helped with food drives, greeted students, cheered on sports teams and much more! See some suggested ideas.
  3. Send us your pictures via email, social media or snail mail. No official entry form is required, but to be eligible for the prize drawing, at least one photo must be submitted with the following information included/attached: Name, school/district, preferred mailing address, email address, phone number, brief photo description (identifying names of people and places and the overall activity) and a few sentences about what you like most or find most helpful about reading School Nutrition.

There are four easy ways to enter the contest. Email your photos and entry details to snmagazine@schoolnutrition.org, go online submit the online contest form, mail your photos (printed on photographic paper only) along with entry details to: Where’s Ruby Roaming? School Nutrition, 120 Waterfront Street, Suite 300, National Harbor, MD 20745, or message your photo and entry details to SNA’s Facebook page ( www.facebook.com/SchoolNutritionAssociation) or share with SNA’s Twitter or Instagram, @SchoolLunch and @schoolnutritionassoc, respectively. When sharing through social media channels, use the hashtag #WheresRuby, so we’re guaranteed to see your entry!
