Have you been longing for a vacation and mesmerized by the television shows with glamorous women going on outrageous shopping trips? Well, here is your chance. All you have to do is come up with 200 words or less, about why cotton is the fabric of you life.
"Cotton Chic: What's Your Feel Good Outfit? Contest" began September 8, 2009 and ends October 12, 2009, so you still have time to come up with a great story.
When you are entering essay contests, remember to always accurately count your words and be creative.
To enter, go to http://www.luckystylespotter.com/contests and submit your entry.
There will be 1 grand prizewinner and 2 runner up winners. The grand prize is a trip for two to New York, NY for a $1000 cotton shopping trip in New York City with a Lucky Style Expert. The trip includes a two night trip, hotel stay and roundtrip coach air transportation.
On or about 10/13/2009 entries will be judged by a panel of judges from Lucky magazine, and the winner selection will be based on the most creative essay submitted.
Notice this is called a contest, versus a sweepstakes. Contests usually require some kind of skill such as writing, baking, a slogan or idea. Because it does require something more than just filling in your name, address and phone number on an entry, there will be less submissions, making your chances of winning better!
To write a winning essay you need to really get into the fabric. What I mean by that is: touch it, smell it, and really look at it. What is it about your special cotton dress or top that makes it different than other clothes you have? Maybe a special moment in your life was created while you were wearing it, or it reminds you of something from your childhood. There are many ways you can go with this contest, just take some time to really think about it.
What really is your feel good outfit, and what makes it special to you? The sponsors do want to know about what the consumers of their products are feeling and what prompts them to buy their product, versus another. Here's your opportunity to tell them, and get paid well for doing it!
The rules do not state how much the total prize is worth, but the shopping trip alone is valued at $1000. That means if you wrote 200 words, each of your words would be worth $5. Now that is a great return on your time.
If you have never entered a skill contest, this is a great one for you to try your hand at.
