Ridgid is once again asking its customers to enter a video contest for a chance to win tools.

The second annual Ridgid video contest challenges contestants to creatively show the Ridgid logo in their videos. The winners will be announced Sept. 11 at the Ridgid Roundup customer event at the company headquarters in Elyria, Ohio.

The Ridgid “Luck of the Draw” contest runs through July 31. Ridgid tool users are invited to record and post an original one- to four-minute video that features the Ridgid logo and two of three “mystery” elements that will be given to contestants after registering through the Web site atwww.RIDGIDvideo.com.

Ridgid will choose five finalist videos, which will be posted on the company’s Web site for voting. Videos will be judged based on persuasiveness, creativity and entertainment value. Five finalists will receive a free trip to attend the Ridgid customer event, where the winner will be announced. The grand-prize winner will receive $2,500 in Ridgid tools of their choosing.

The Ridgid Roundup customer event is a two-day event that includes social events, product training, open discussions on industry topics, tool-related competitive games, a tour of company headquarters and its manufacturing facility, and a chance to meet and interact with Ridgid employees and executive staff.

“The contest is a fun way for Ridgid tool users to express themselves creatively while showing their interest in Ridgid,” said Steve Dyer, director of marketing communications. “We are looking forward to seeing what the contestants will come up with this year. Also the video contest adds an element of excitement to the Ridgid Roundup customer event.”
