Generation Know from U by Kotex – Instagram Contest and Sweepstakes + a $2 Coupon

Are you or your daughter “In the Know”?  I remember back when I was a teen (was it really that long ago?) girls were pretty secretive about their bodies and that led to a lot of misinformation, insecurity and a whole lot of lingering questions.  Well, that was way back when and girls today are taking a step forward.

Generation Know is the first generation of girls coming together to get the facts about their bodies and sharing that knowledge to empower others. The Generation Know campaign from Kotex seeks to motivate girls to take the pledge to “get in the know” with U by Kotex products, activating the pledge by passing along her awareness and knowledge to her friends. Kotex wants to empower girls to “get in the know” about their bodies and to inspire themselves and their friends.

And to make it all fun, U by Kotex has launched two FUN promotions with chances to WIN! — the #GenerationKnowWalmart Instagram Contest and the U by Kotex National Sweepstakes.

#GenerationKnowWalmart Instagram Contest

Express yourself and let your creativity shine when you show the world what inspires and empowers you – whether it be the beauty of nature, music, or quotes. Girls who want to “get in the know” can express themselves using Instagram to become the voice of Generation Know where they can get the facts. Girls should post pictures to Instagram of what inspires and empowers them to show their peers that they are apart of Generation Know, using the hashtag #GenerationKnowWalmart, and they’ll entered to win a U by Kotex Inspiration Prize Pack from Walmart. The U by Kotex Inspiration Prize Pack from Walmart includes products to share with friends like 3 Apple iTunes gift cards, picture frames, nail polish and much more. Please no self-portraits as Instagram contest posts. Any self-portraits will not be judged and will not be eligible to win the U by Kotex Inspiration Prize Pack from Walmart.

  1. What a great opportunity to teach young women about their bodies. I’ve heard so many saddening things when it comes to young women knowing what to do with menstruation, sex, and other issues they just weren’t talked to about.

  2. It’s true, we’re coming a long way and it’s a good thing!

  3. I read about the “in the know” campaign last month and LOVE the idea! Thanks for sharing more info about how they are getting the word out, using Instagram is a great way to reach young girls!

  5. I know topics like this were not discussed at my house when I was growing up. I think this is great.

  6. What a great way to get the conversation started. Thanks for the information about the sweepstakes as well!
