Whataburger Announces ‘Burger Verse Contest’ for National Burger Month

In honor of National Burger Month in May, Whataburger is calling fans to participate in the #BurgerVerseContest poetry contest.

“When we were deciding how we wanted to celebrate National Burger Month, we discussed all of the impressive social media content our customers have submitted over the years,” said Pam Cox, Vice President of Communications for Whataburger. “The #BurgerVerseContest was born! It’s our way of encouraging more of that creativity and rewarding our customers for their loyalty. We can’t wait to see what our fans submit!”

Rhymers and rappers alike will submit their best Whataburger poetry for the chance to win a moment of fame on Whataburger’s social media channels, free Whataburger for a Year and a $500 Ticketmaster gift card.

The company has seen a variety of Whataburger-inspired art over the years, from Whataburger odes to Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit songs and even tattoos, which sparked the idea for the poetry contest.

Here’s how the contest works:

• For three weeks beginning May 3, fans and poets alike can share their Whataburger-inspired poems (70 words max) on Whataburger’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels
• Poems will be judged based on originality, tone and whether the poem meets submission guidelines outlined below
• Each week during the contest, Whataburger will share three of the best poems as Whataburger-branded graphics on their social media channels and ask fans to vote for their favorite
• Each weekly winner will receive free Whataburger for a Year and a $500 gift card to Ticketmaster so winners can select concert tickets of their choice
