And our Cooper U UX Boot Camp contest winner is...


Last week, we asked you why your brain needs a Cooper U UX Boot Camp workout. You tweeted visual representations of your answers and after carefully considering each and every one of your replies, Cooper staff members deliberated and chose not one, but TWO, lucky winners to attend our San Francisco UX Boot Camp on July 30th!
Congratulations, Chris Portugal and Kevin Hollingsworth!
Chris gave us three great reasons why his brain needs a Cooper U UX Boot Camp workout:
Kevin told us to ask Obi Wan...
We loved Chris and Kevin's responses because they were clever, obviously took some muscle to create, and made us literally laugh aloud. Frankly, we couldn't choose between the two, so we decided to just invite them both!
We would be remiss, however, if we didn't call out some of the other entries that caught our attention. Congrats to our three "Honorable Mention" winners who will be getting a copy of our books:
Winston Shapiro said he should win "Because I teach the next generation to build a better asylum." As educators ourselves, this one pulled on our heart strings.
Speaking of heart strings, Francesca Barrientos sent us this creative reference to the role of empathy in design.
And last, but definitely not least, we love Jennifer Pumphrey's gumption and enthusiasm. She made us smile with each of her entries (this is just 3 of them!)
Thanks to everyone who submitted to the contest; you made our week with your insightful, creative submissions.
Want to join Chris and Kevin at our upcoming UX Boot Camp? Secure your spot today. And hurry, we've only got a few seats left!
