Ok all you snow virgins! If you’ve lived somewhere warm all of your life and have never seen snow (and want to), then you should sign up for this contest. The Colorado Tourism Office is sponsoring a contest, called “Colorado Snow at First Sight“, where three winners will receive an all expenses-paid, three-month trip to Colorado! Of course, this means you will need to be available over that period of time (January-March 2010). The contest is not just open to US residents – it is open internationally. To qualify, you must not have had any prior experience with snow conditions and you must submit a 60 second video showing off your creativity and personality explaining why you should win. The three most popular/creative videos will be chosen as the winners.
The purpose of this contest is to draw more tourism to Colorado. To that end, the winners will get to go skiing, sledding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, dog sledding, hot-tubbing, and night-clubbing. They will also be able to visit many of Colorado’s hot springs, spas, and restaurants. To spread the good word, the winners will be required to talk about their experiences on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter on a daily basis.
You won’t know if you like snow or not until you experience it firsthand. Why not give it a try? All you have to do is put together a 60 second video? How hard is that? It sounds worth it to me for the experience of a lifetime. I would enter myself, but I live in a snowy area already
