#ScaryNotScary Halloween Contest


Once upon a midnight dreary…

Do you have a knack for storytelling? Are your Instagram Stories scary-good? Could you use a $3100 Visa Gift Card? We’ve got a contest for you to enter…if you dare. We want to see your best interpretation of this prompt:

“…and then I got away in a car2go.”

Submissions can be anything from a tweet to a short story, or a video, and we’re pretty open on how you interpret the prompt. We’ll be accepting submissions from all over Canada and the United States excluding Quebec, New York, Rhode Island and Florida. Take a look at the Official Rules here for more details.


1 “Hallowinner” Grand Prize – $3100 USD Visa Gift Card

1 “Halloweenie” Runner-up – $500 USD Visa Gift Card

1 Dedicated $1000 Prize for the best* video submission


How to enter**

  • Make a post on Twitter, Instagram or publicly on Facebook with the hashtags #car2go and #ScaryNotScary either in the caption or body of the post.
  • Alternatively, you can also post on Instagram or Facebook Stories with the hashtags #car2go and #ScaryNotScary, but be sure to set your stories to auto-download so you can send it to us in a message after the 24-hour timer expires so we can see them.



Sample Submissions

Here are a couple of sample submissions to get you started:


Sample 1

There’s no one here yet the bushes rustle,

I pull my phone out and start to hustle

Staring yellow eyes send shivers from tip to toe

and then I got away in a car2go

#car2go #ScaryNotScary


Sample 2

As I leave the office at the end of the night

I notice that there’s no one in sight

My phone is aglow and offers me light

As a sinister sound echoes and gives me a good fright

But there’s no need to fear, because to my right

I see my shining car2go knight

I hurry and hop in with all of my might

And as I escape I exclaim, “man, this is tight”

#car2go #ScaryNotScary 



Sample 3


Of course, your submissions don’t have to be poetry, or even written word. Feel free to submit videos, images, arts and crafts or whatever else you think might help you tell your story. We’ll be featuring the top submissions on our social channels and blog on Halloween.

Good Luck!
