My Virtual World Contest

Win Free Internet for a Month

Submit your photo or video for a chance to win a $100 bill credit and a donation to the K-12 school of your choice!



There’s an old saying that a picture is worth a thousand words. At Ritter Communications, we say a picture or video could be worth a $100 bill credit and a donation to a local school!

If you are one of the thousands of families who finds themselves online now more than ever, you’re not alone. Whether you are working from home, doing online doctor visits or participating in virtual learning, there is no doubt the internet is playing a bigger role in your life than ever before.

As you settle into your child’s school-from-home or even your work-from-home routine, we want to see what your virtual world looks like. Did you remodel a room to get the perfect Zoom background? Does your child attend classes with stuffed animal classmates by their side? Does your dog or cat make an appearance at doctor’s appointments? We want to see!



To enter, submit a picture or video of you and/or any family member using the internet. Two winners will be chosen randomly and announced each week on social media! Plus, get an extra entry when you like, share or comment on our Enter-to-Win weekly Facebook posts!

The fun doesn’t stop there: We’d like to dish out a little extra credit to the five most creative entries at the end of the contest. This is your chance to create a truly inspiring entry for a chance to win a $100 bill credit as well! 


Tips & Examples

As you’re shooting your photo or video, here are a few quick tips to keep in mind:

  • Make sure you have proper lighting and that your child isn’t backlit against a window
  • Zoom with your feet, not your camera’s zooming options 
  • Check your background to make sure there isn’t anything distracting
  • Don’t include any identifying information in the foreground or background such as address, full name, license plate, etc.
  • Be creative! We love to see how inventive you are with your virtual world — plus, five lucky “creative” entries will also be featured and entered to win a $100 bill credit!
  • Don’t forget to leave us some feedback if you’ve had a recent positive experience with us — we’d love to hear how it went and congratulate our employees for their hard work in the process.

Eligible to win only once from the random weekly drawing. A random drawing will be held every Thursday and winners will be notified and acknowledged on social media each Friday. Each like, share or comment on the "enter to win" weekly Facebook post is equal to an additional entry. Each photo/video submission through the contest landing page is equal to an entry. While interacting on social media increases the likelihood to be selected, a person must submit a photo or video to win. At the end of the contest, the five most inspirational, creative submissions will also be selected as winners. The top five most inspirational, creative submissions will be notified the week of December 14-18, 2020. All entries are eligible for the top five most inspirational submissions. By submitting photos/videos you give Ritter Communications permission to use for marketing promotion.

Except as provided in these terms and conditions, there will be no compensation for the use of any photo or video at the time of publication or in the future. Ritter Communications encourages photo and video entries submitted to remove identity indicators such as backgrounds containing personal information like street address, car license plate, the outside of your home, etc., to ensure your security and privacy. If an entry is randomly selected as a winner but contains inappropriate or poor content, profanity, etc. it is subject to be discarded for another winner to be randomly selected. 20 weekly winners and five inspirational, creative winners will receive a $100 bill credit from Ritter Communications to apply to their Ritter Communications monthly reoccurring charges. Any monthly balance over $100 will be the customer’s responsibility. Credit may not be transferred to another customer. A $100 donation from Ritter Communications will also be given to each winner's K-12 school of choice within the Ritter Communications residential service area. School winners will be published each week and payment to the schools sent at the end of the contest. Ritter Communications employees not eligible.
