Segue is proud to announce that we won the Washington DC regional competition (medium category) for the American City Business Journal’s second annual Social Madness competition. The regional competition ran from June 3 to July 8, with four successive rounds that whittled down the competition to determine the one to continue on to the national competition. Segue is excited to be able to represent the DC region and to continue competing with the goal of winning $10,000 for our charity, the Arlington Street People’s Assistance Network (A-SPAN).
Social Madness: The National Rounds
The National competition consists of the 44 winners of the regional competitions in each of the size categories competing in five rounds between July 16 and August 19. Just as in the regional competition, the first round will advance a pool of businesses to be seeded for bracketed competition starting in round two; Segue will need to place in the top 20. Scoring is based on votes for Segue on the Business Journal Social Madness site as well as follower interaction on our social media sites (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Google +). We were honored by the support we’ve received thus far and we would love to continue and build upon this participation as the competition continues. Below is information on how to support Segue.
