Tasks include “liking” social media pages, posting photos on social media platforms and other interactive activities, and completing online surveys for Crest + Oral-B, EDIC, and MDS. The school with the most points will earn up to $1,500 for their ASDA chapter! Get ready to prove how much spirit your school has!
