5 Tracy Lynn Teachers Be LikeFor the second year in a row, Freedom Federal Credit Union sponsored the #SummerofFreedomFCU photo contest. The eight-week social media contest called for Harford County participants to post photos of their summer adventures while showcasing Freedom Federal Credit Union’s branded blue and yellow sunglasses. The free sunglasses were available throughout the summer at all five branches in Harford County. Each week, the public was invited to vote for their favorite entry on Freedom’s Facebook page.

The social media photo contest came to an exciting conclusion when Ms. Borkowicz took the lead in the final few minutes of the competition. Her winning photo, titled “Teachers Be Like…” won with 1,085 votes. A $1,000 check from Freedom Federal Credit Union was presented to Ms. Borkowicz and her family following the win.
Ms. Borkowicz is in her 22nd year of teaching for Harford County Public Schools, and in the 5th week of the competition, submitted a photo montage of herself enjoying summer break in ways only teachers can truly appreciate. The creative display initially won her over a hundred dollars in local gift cards and was then featured as a finalist during the competition’s 24-hour grand prize voting period that accumulated more than 4,000 votes for the 16 selected finalists.

“I have been a member [of Freedom Federal Credit Union] since I was a teenager,” stated Ms. Borkowicz in a message to Freedom. “I am so – SO grateful”.
