Sweda Company Announces Grand Prize Winner of the 2011 Case Study Challenge
Sweda Company LLC, City of Industry, Calif., Friday announced "Etch A Sketch Holiday Mailer," submitted by Josh Ebrahemi of Jack Nadel International, Culver City, Calif., as this year's Grand Prize Winner of the 2011 Case Study Challenge.
"Thank you so much, Sweda, for the opportunity, life is so amazing! I could not have done it without JNI and all my friends," said Ebrahemi. "I'm taking all of JNI out to lunch for all their wonderful support."
With 50 percent of the record-breaking 17,883 total votes received during the voting period, Ebrahemi will claim the winner's check of $5,000 plus a $2,500 company credit memo to Jack Nadel. Josh credits his large number of votes to social media outreach. "I asked everyone I knew to post it on their Facebook account and many of them did and then asked their friends to post it. Before we knew it, on our news feed, it was covered with posts from everyone," Ebrahemi said.
"It was no surprise to us that Josh won. He combines fantastic creativity, great service and a winning personality, too, and is a fantastic A.E.," said Craig Nadel, president of Jack Nadel. "We all like and respect Josh and a lot of his votes came from his fellow JNI'ers."
