After a cross-country trip, our beloved Chompie has returned to Silver Spring and this weekend crews will help him take his rightful place — on our company’s headquarters, One Discovery Place, in Silver Spring. In conjunction with his return and in anticipation of the 25th annual Shark Week (premiering on Sunday, August 12 on Discovery Channel), we have several ways for our neighbors in the D.C. area to celebrate the most jawsome time of the year:

  • Enter Our #ChompiePic Contest: Simply follow @DiscoveryComm on Twitter, snap a photo of Chompie (we’re looking for quality, originality and humor) and tweet it using the #ChompiePic hashtag. We’ll pick four winners across three weeks to win delicious burrito packs from our friends at California Tortilla! (Download the full rules.)
  • Request a #ChompieAttack at Work: Chompie’s little brother, Chompie Jr., will be making his way around the metro area, bringing a California Tortilla feast for 20 to local businesses the week of August 6. Simply tweet @DiscoveryComm letting us know where you work and that you’d like a #ChompieAttack, and we’ll pick several people to surprise!
  • Join Our Community Screening: Mark your calendar for Friday, August 10 at 8:30pm! We’ll be hosting a screening of Shark Week‘s Sharkzilla in downtown Silver Spring on the Fountain Plaza (Ellsworth Drive). Bring your own chair, blanket or beach towel and be prepared for fin-tastic fun, including pics wit Chompie Jr., prizes and more!

We’re clearly ready for Shark Week…are you?
