Are you a social media and community influencer with an impressive following? Do you believe that your voice resonates with your audience so strongly that you can “influence” others’ behavior on social media? Well, let’s put your influencer skills to the test for a chance to win a $2,500 prize!

Entries are now being accepted for the Texas Black Expo Influencers Award Competition. We will be accepting only 50 of Houston’s top social media influencers to help us promote our upcoming 20th annual Summer Celebration throughout Texas.

Influencers will compete in different “rounds” of competition until the final showdown, when one influencer will be crowned as Texas’ Greatest Influencer!

How the Competition Works:
From February through March, influencers will push and promote the Summer Celebration on your platforms in a creative way. At least one TBE message post per week must be completed, and all posts must tag @texasblackexpo in order to be counted in the competition. Each influencer will have a customized page to track their stats.

Influencers who make it to the final round will be required to go live at the TBE Summer Celebration’s events, post one reel per day, and post one TikTok per day.

Benefits of Competition:
In April, we will evaluate the scores and narrow down the competition to the top 20 influencers. Each of these influencers will receive:
- All-access VIP Pass to the 20th annual TBE Summer Celebration - Access to VIP reception and photo opportunity with Earvin “Magic” Johnson - A free vendor booth at the 20th annual TBE Summer Celebration - A chance to go live from the Expo - Opportunity to participate in a panel or workshop (if applicable)

Announcement of Competition Winner:
The winner of the competition will be announced on Sunday, May 21st at the close of the Texas Black Expo Summer Celebration. He/she will be crowned the winner and receive bragging rights as “Texas’ Top Influencer” and receive a prize of $2,500.
