ECEAP is Essential


The #myECEAPwhy Contest

Who doesn’t love winning?  WSA has teamed up with Lakeshore Learning to run an easy and fun social media contest to boost parents and caregivers’ voices as we build support for protecting ECEAP.


Parents and caregivers who participate will be entered into the chance win Lakeshore gift cards.

In order to be entered into the chance to win $50 Lakeshore gift cards, you just need to take 4 simple steps:

  1. take a picture or make video of your “ECEAP why”
  2. share your picture/video with your “my ECEAP why” caption
  3. tag your lawmaker
  4. use the hashtags #myECEAPwhy, #ECEAPisessential and #WAleg

The basic rules are:

  • sharing or retweeting a post doesn’t count
  • you must use the #myECEAPwhy hashtag so we’re able to track your entries
  • the contest will run through October 31, 2020

Some basic tools for you to use:


  • Sample messaging for your caption, when you post:
    • ECEAP helps me go to school so I’m better able to be my child’s first teacher.
    • ECEAP helps me work by providing quality child care for my child.
    • ECEAP supports my whole family by teaching me the tools to be a better parent/caregiver.
    • ECEAP makes my family stronger by partnering with me to get my child ready for school.
    • These are just sample captions – feel free to craft and post your own!
  • Get active on all your social networks (Facebook, Twitter & Instagram).  We are accepting contest entries on all three social networks and you don’t have to stick to just one.  You will be entered into the chance to win Lakeshore gift cards for each network you post on.


  • Increase your chances of winning by reminding your friends and family to like, share and/or retweet your posts with their social followers.
