Congrats to GetWindstream’s Paper Map Challenge Winner!
Move over, Magellan! After reviewing many applications from eager participants, GetWindstream selected a winning duo for the Paper Map Challenge. In order to receive $1,500, the selected applicants were tasked with navigating their town for 7 days without any help from GPS. We sent them a swag bag of items including their own paper map, an instant camera, and a compass to help them complete the task.
Ashley’s upbeat and eager demeanor made her a prime candidate for this navigation challenge. Growing up, Ashley’s dad always used a map to move around town, and her fiancé, Jason, has a knack for remembering locations.
She and Jason worked together on this challenge and safely made their way to three locations in their town. While some locations were easier to navigate to than others, they became significantly more frustrated trying to travel there without GPS. “Despite being from this area, we [didn’t] realize how little we pay attention to actual addresses on buildings,” shared Ashley.
Ashley and Jason’s greatest challenge occurred as a result of non-labeled buildings and business parks. Though they disagreed a few times on the path they should take to different locations, they found the challenge enjoyable and were able to laugh off their frustrations. “The best part [of the challenge] was being able to do it with each other. We are great at problem solving and being able to work together.”
Congratulations to Ashley and Jason on successfully completing the challenge and thank you to all who applied!
