Design Contest for our new Series: "Growing Smart with Smartsteem"

in smartsteem •  last month

smartsteem_contest.png

Greetings Steemians.

You might be aware, that we at Smartsteem are currently taking on some new exciting projects to finish the year. Among the project ideas we have bounced around, we've decided that one of the best ways we can do our share to help the platform grow, is by contributing to the education of it's users.

We completely understand how frustrating it can be for new users to grow on STEEM. The formula for growth is not rigid per say, but some of the foundations we intend to share will allow for those with the right mindset, with the right hunger to grow and achieve their personal goals much faster.

The main idea behind "Growing Smart with Smartsteem" is to share some of the framework and wisdom that some of the most succesful Steemians on the platform have learned. With that in mind, we will try to make the series valuable for both newbies and veterans, but more importantly, make it fun.

We need a Teaching Assistant


And believe it or not, you can help us make this happen and win some STEEM along the way. In other words the series will be "taught" by a special character who is yet to come into existence. His name, Smarty.



How does Smarty Look?


Well, we don't know yet. But that is the whole point of this little contest. In our minds Smarty is just a cool guy to hang around with and someone who is the absolute king of patience. How does that translate to looks? that is completely up to you.

But, this is were it gets really interesting. Those with the skills and the creativity to come up with a great design for Smarty, can walk away with 25 STEEM.

If you are thinking that we are going to make a lot of people work and not recognize their contribution don't worry. We will make sure to upvote the best entries, the best designs on the comment section of this very post. When the payout closes, we will announce the 1st place winner.

How to enter?

In conclusion


Up until now our main focus has been on developing the best tools possible for our fellow Steemians. But, as part of our commitment and our shared vision for this blockchain, we are going to start focusing more on the strenghtening of it's community too.

We strongly believe that with initiatives like this, with the right information and the right platform culture, we will see STEEM surpass all expectations. In due time all of its early adopters will remember these days, as the days were they got acquainted with true opportunity.

I instantly thought of a snail, they are cool, and they would have time to sit back and think. I didn't read that the character had to be human and I couldn't picture one during a game of guess who in my head. Here you have my king of patience.

Innovative approach to connect stemmers..keep it up..

Excellent contribution
I want to remember that all jobs are useful, but look for one that really generates a purpose in life, that fills you with passion, the joy of joy has no comparison. This year I found my purpose of life. I cultivate altruism, I am a vegetarian, I focus on cultivating productive habits, I prepare myself to be a motivational trainer, I will focus on helping in all the churches of Venezuela and the educational institutions and later on around the world,
and through this channel to help people improve their passions.
Your ideas combined with passion and always with God, you will be unstoppable
