“Swap My Floor" Photo Contest: and the Winners are…
Oct 8
Jill Ruiz

I am so excited to announce our Grand Prize and First Place winners for Empire’s first ever “Swap My Floor” photo contest! We received 74 entries and almost 4,500 votes on Facebook. The winners were selected based on their need for flooring and the creativity/originality of their entry. And the winners are…

  • Grand Prize – Lauren Brown of Arlington, TX
  • First Prize – Rhonda Carroll of Peotone, IL
  • First Prize – Carl Wall of Leominster, MA

As the Grand Prize winner, Lauren will receive $5,000 worth of flooring for her bedroom; and as First Place winners, Rhonda will receive $2,000 worth of flooring for her kitchen and Carl for his basement. Check out the photos below!

Since this is the first social media photo contest Empire has done, we didn’t really know what to expect. I have to say, we were all impressed with how many people got involved in the contest! Not only did we get outstanding response from people across the county, but there was such great support from friends and family when it came to voting. We’d like to thank everyone who participated in the contest – choosing the winners was a very tough decision, but we’re excited to be able to help Lauren, Rhonda and Carl improve their homes.

We are eager to get started on their projects, share the before and after photos as well as their stories with everyone. We know they are going to be huge transformations! Stay tuned…

P.S. Don’t forget to keep up with Empire on Facebook so you can get involved in future contests!
