SolarWinds' Celebration of SysAdmin Day 2014
Contest Opens: July 15 @ 12pm CDT
Contest Closes: July 25 @ 12pm CDT (SysAdmin Day!)
Each year SolarWinds' throws a celebration where we give recognition to all the many awesome (and under-appreciated) Sysadmins around the world. We know you're buried in work 365 days of the year, but now is your time to shine and win some prizes along the way! So, without further delay, let's see your best #Sysadminselfie! ...And we aren't looking for just any selfie. We want to see you in action, doing what you do best, at your place of work. Remember all those projects you've done over the past few months? Well, we want to see it. We want to see all the moments that you've shined as a Sysadmin and saved the world... once again.
