BEATRICE, Neb. — Exmark announced the upcoming launch of its “Take Back Your Weekends” video contest. Set to begin April 1, 2015, the contest will run through June 30, 2015.

Entrants are required to submit a video depicting how lawn mowers can save time along with a story on what they might do with the extra time. Videos must be original and not previously-published work, and will be judged on three weighted criteria: creativity (50 percent); authenticity of the person/story presented (30 percent); and, demonstration of lawn mower’s time saving ability to “take back your weekends” (20 percent).

One lucky winner will take home the grand prize: a top-of-the-line Exmark Lazer Z X-Series commercial zero-turn riding mower valued at more than $12,000. First prize is a Delaware River fishing trip with Mike Iaconelli, professional tournament fisherman.
