Wells Fargo has announced the launch on March 15, 2013 of Succeeding TogetherSM, a video essay contest that celebrates the value of building relationships as a foundation for success in life. The contest was created by Wells Fargo specifically for participants (ages 13-18) in The First Tee(r), a youth development organization that introduces young people to the game of golf and its inherent values at nearly 200 chapters across the U.S.
The four winners and a guest will receive a four-day/three-night trip for two to Charlotte, N.C. to attend the 2013Wells Fargo Championship and experience up-close the excitement of a PGA TOUR event from inside the ropes. The grand prize winner will play in the tournament's Pro-Am with defending champion Rickie Fowler on May 1, 2013.
Contestants upload their videos to the Succeeding Together contest site, which are then posted to Wells Fargo's YouTube channel. They can then share the videos through their social networks. The top 50 entries, based on the number of "thumbs up" the videos earn, will be reviewed by a panel of judges from Wells Fargo, The First Tee, and the Wells Fargo Championship tournament office.
Only participants in The First Tee (ages 13-18 in the Birdie, Eagle or Ace program levels) can enter the Succeeding Together contest. Video entries must be uploaded between March 15 and April 1. Winners will be announced in mid-April. No entry fee or purchase is required to participate in the contest.
