A competition launched by the Leeds Corn Exchange to raise awareness of their half-term children’s activities has become a trending topic in Leeds on social media platform Twitter. The #Yorkshiresuperhero competition invites people to suggest what the perfect Yorkshire Superhero would be called and what superpower they would possess.
The competition has so far had over 80 entries and the #Yorkshiresuperhero hashtag has been used 112 times. The competition which launched earlier this week aims to raise awareness of the Corn Exchanges’ Superhero Day which takes place on Friday 25th February, 10-4. Batman will fly into the shopping centre to meet the children of Leeds and help them make their own superhero masks and comics.
Batman will pick the winner of the #Yorkshiresuperhero competition and the winner will have their #Yorkshiresuperhero brought to life in their very own comic strip which will be designed by a professional illustrator.
Louise Smith, centre manager at the Leeds Corn Exchange said: “We are putting lots of effort into building our online audience and hope by doing so we can engage with the local community on a daily basis. Superhero Day is set to be a fantastic day for children of all ages and we are very excited about meeting Batman.”
The competition closes at 3pm tomorrow afternoon. To enter simply follow @leedscornex on Twitter and suggest your #Yorkshiresuperhero or like the Corn Exchange Facebook page and add your answer to the wall.
