We are pausing the #MSFTPowerBreak sweepstakes until Monday, July 13, 2020 and will extend the sweepstakes to July 26, 2020.

Calling all of you hard-working Power-Appers who have your hands full right now at home.

We see you trying to work, teach your kids, do the laundry, and keep your sanity all at the same time. We thought you’d appreciate a chance to take a minute out of your day to enjoy a quick power break. Connect, laugh, and learn with your Power Apps community—and maybe even win a prize along the way.

How to join in


To be entered to win in the #MSFTPowerBreak sweepstakes, just visit @MSPowerApps for fun challenges that we’ll post every Monday and Thursday for three weeks, starting May 26, 2020.


Follow the prompts to answer the questions and post your photos, GIFs, or stories to participate in these challenges. Let’s get to know each other better and have a little fun.


Each week we’ll select 10 winners* at random to receive prizes like a branded wireless charging mousepad, bluetooth speaker, lap desk, and more. One grand prize winner will also receive a Microsoft Surface Laptop 3.


How do I enter?

It’s easy! Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Visit
  2. Find the most recent #MSFTPowerBreak question. Hint: it will usually be our pinned tweet and click on your answer.
  • For a multiple choice question, just tweet your confirmation message from your own account. Make sure the original question or prompt image link are included in your tweet.
  • For an open-ended question, just respond with your answer in the form of a sentence, GIF, photo, or whatever, and add an @reply.

Am I eligible to win?

You need to be:

  • A legal resident of the 50 U.S. states (and the District of Columbia)
  • 18 years of age or older

You can’t be:

  • An employee or a family member of an employee of Microsoft Corporation and its subsidiaries, affiliates, advertising agencies, and sweepstakes parties.

How many winners are there each week?

We’ll randomly select 10 lucky winners every week for a total of 30 winners.

How do I find out if I won?

Check your mentions every Monday! That’s when we’ll reply to the week’s winners. Be sure to DM us within 72 hours so we can confirm that you’re eligible and get your address to send out your prize.

What could I win?

You could win some sweet Microsoft Power Apps swag and other goodies, including a bluetooth speaker, wireless charging mousepad, lap desk, stickers, and more. One lucky grand prize winner will also receive a Surface Pro 3.

Can I enter every week to win?

Absolutely. Go for it!

If I’ve already won once, can I win again?

You can only win one grand prize and one first prize.

What if I go back and answer a past question? Am I entered to win this week?

We love your enthusiasm! But no, you aren’t entered to win this week’s sweepstakes if you answer a past question. You must answer the current week’s question to be entered to win this week.

Can I enter to win more than once per entry period?

Sorry, you can only enter to win once per entry period. Have fun with #MSFTPowerBreak as much as you want, but multiple tweets within each entry period won’t boost your chances of winning.
