The Parks and Recreation Obamicon Contest
In “Pawnee Zoo”, you’ll probably remember spotting this a couple of times:
That, my friends, is a Leslie Knope Obamicon.
At Obamicon.Me, anyone can create their own Obamicons by uploading a photo, running it through the Obamicon generator and typing in a headline. Simple stuff.
Because Obamicon.Me is both fun and free, I thought it a good idea to use the site as part of Knope Knows’ first BIG contest. Be sure to enter this one, too. The grand prize winner will receive an awesome prize (see below).
Create an Obamicon using a screen grab of any character from any Parks and Recreation episode. The best entry (be creative and funny!) will receive an awesome prize.
How to enter:
Register at Obamicon.Me
Upload a screen grab from any episode of Parks and Recreation and run it through the Obamicon generator
