You could win an iPod touch by using Twitter to nominate for HES Awards

iPod Touch

It’s new, it’s very shiny, and it could be yours when you nominate for the Healthcare Engagement Strategy Awards.

In January 2010, we’ll be announcing the best healthcare engagement activities from 2009, in the Healthcare Engagement Strategy Awards. We want to know who, or what, has made the biggest difference in healthcare by engaging people.

If you’re on Twitter, you can tell us who we should consider for recognition simply by tweeting a nomination using hashtag #hesawards and the word nominate. And when you do, we’ll thank you by entering you into a prize draw to win an iPod touch.

Who or what should I nominate?

Healthcare engagement is happening all around you – on websites; in social media applications like Facebook, Twitter, blogs, or Youtube; through mobile applications; and offline too of course.

Think about hospitals, physicians and healthcare professionals, communicators, healthcare companies, government initiatives, charities, whatever or whoever you think has made a positive difference to healthcare through engagement activities during 2009.

Nominate to enter the Prize Draw

To enter the Prize Draw, simply send a tweet containing the word nominate and hashtag #hesawards.

Your tweet may nominate an individual, campaign, organization or tool for recognition in the Healthcare Engagement Strategy Awards, or you might simply be spreading the word about the Awards and the Prize Draw.

So for example, your nomination tweet might look something like this:

I nominate X for #hesawards

Where X is your nomination. It might be a website, a campaign, a project or programme, a hospital or facility, a company or charity, a person – whatever or whoever you want to nominate for a Healthcare Engagement Strategy Award.

Even better, tell us in your tweet why you’re nominating them!
