I’ve got just one question: Do you feel lucky? Well, do ya? Even if you don’t, try your luck in one of these travels contests below.
Just for Fun
Boston, Massachussetts isn’t part of the MidAtlantic, but here’s a nice little contest to whet your appetite for travel and perhaps inspire you to think fondly of home…along the Atlantic Ocean, of course. The Condo Contest LLC has devised an essay/video contest with a prize of a condo in Canton, Massachussetts. There is an entry fee of $50, but it’s a small price to pay to get your hands on good real estate. Other prizes are in cash ranging from $2000 to $500. Contestants provide an essay or video response to one of several entertaining questions, including: If you had a superpower, what would it be? or What was your most embarrassing moment?

Fill ‘Er Up
You and 300 of your closest friends can win airfare from Orbitz.com for a luxury escape to your choice of Aruba, Las Vegas, or Orlando. To win, you must “fill up a plane” by getting 300 of your friends to join you on a virtual plane. The catch is that you can invite only two people per day to join, and the contest is awarded on a first-come serve basis. So the first person to get 300 people aboard wins, regardless of the contest end date of August 20, 2008. For more information, visit http://www.orbitz.com/filltheplane.
“Throw Some D’s On It”
Forget the shower, let’s do it “ridin’ down the freeway of love in a pink cadilac.” JVC Mobile Entertainment and Spin Magazine are teaming up to bring you a fun new contest that has entrants record themselves on video singing their favorite song in their car. This contest can be a great intergenerational project if you have a teen on hand and an older adult with a love affair for cars. Or, if you just have a “hoopdie,” that will work as well. The main thing is to have fun...and sing your heart out! Visit http://www.spin.com/carstereoke for details. Contest ends August 31, 2008.
Soccer fans may already know of the Soccer.com website, but those of you who don’t may want to check it out and enter the website’s new GiveandGo! contest. One lucky winner will receive 4 round-trip tickets on American Airlines to anywhere in the United States. Other winners will receive frequent flyer miles and other prizes. The contest ends November 20, 2008. For more information, visit http://www.soccer.com/giveandgo.
