Mango Mania is in full throttle. Mango Mania is a road rally where teams will complete Mango-related challenges on their way to New Orleans for ALA 2011. The teams have two groups of challenges: those designed to be completed before ALA, and those that they will have to do on the way to New Orleans and while actually there. Each team should post pictures/videos on their Facebook page to show that the challenge has been completed. Each challenge is judged on creativity and completion.
Here are some of the challenges they have to do before ALA:
-Find 5 patrons who will either give a Mango testimonial or say something they learned from a Mango course. Share video.
-Create a work of art using items found in your public library. Share pic/video.
-Record a video of you giving a Mango demo to patron(s) while making it interactive.
-Visit another Mango Library (Library with Mango subscription) and bring them a homemade gift. Share pic/video.
Also, through Mango Mania teams have Bonus activities to choose from:
-Represent Mango as much as possible by getting Mangofied in as many challenges as possible: i.e., decorating your Mango shirts, face paint, etc.
-Race to get to the Mango Booth and toast with Mango smoothies in a foreign language.
-Team with most social media activity. We will monitor/count number of teams' retweets and other people tweeting with your team’s hashtag. Also, number of fans on your Facebook page as well as comments from your fans.
-Get a person/representative from another language learning company to say “mango” in some way. Share video.
-Get a story about “Mango Mania” and your experience published in a credible news outlet, like a local newspaper. Share link.
