Orem is hoping residents will start following it on Instagram as the city strives to increase its presence on social media.

The city has partnered with Lisman Studio in an Instagram contest. Orem is giving away 10 free family passes to the pool at the Orem Fitness Center and five free movie rental passes. Lisman Studio will give away a free interior design consultation and two lamps.

To enter the contest all you need to do is follow both Lisman Studio and Orem City on Instagram.

“Orem City continues to find new ways to engage citizens and increase its following,” Orem spokesman Steven Downs said.  “Social media has become a preferred way for many citizens to receive information about their community, and Instagram is the fastest growing social media platform in the United States.”

Lisman Studio is the firm doing the interior design for Midtown 360 and the new changes that will be coming to the Orem Fitness Center.

“We want to connect with citizens so we can keep them up-to-speed on the things happening in their community,” Downs said. “We have heard from citizens that they want to be better informed, and social media is the quickest and cheapest way for the city to talk to its citizens.”
