HI,
I have a form which contains an additional form. The thinking is when a user fills out the form, they can first choose to 'send to social' first and then when they want... submit the create contest using that submit button.

I've attached a screenshot to give you a better idea.

The purpose is so the info can be posted on the social sites prior to the actual contest starting, then when they are set to go, submit the contest to start.

Can you suggest/show how to accomplish these 2 steps the most elegantly?
