Are you a contest player?
Do you enter anything and everything?
I’ve just started to get in the swing of things, entering things I see on TV, in the paper, or on the back of cereal boxes.
I don’t want to be a jerk who brags about his kids, but …
Last year Cheerios promised a $10 000 education fund prize to one winner.
My son ended up in 2nd place. No money for his education, but a year’s supply of Cheerios and bragging rights for family coast to coast every morning at breakfast when they saw his face on the back of the box.
Ever since that big win, I became a contest player. The latest? I want my boys to be Gap models.
Find out how you can enter too after the jump.
You’ve got a week to get your entry in (deadline is Apr 22). The hang up for me is the picture MUST be one from the last 3 months. So I’ve been following my boys around like paparazzi looking for the perfect pic.
The theme of the contest is “Be the smile that changes everything,” and part of your entry has to be a story about how your kid brightens up the world. That should be easy.
It’s fun to follow the #gapcastingcall hashtag on Twitter too, just to see other braggards going stage mom about their kids.
I don’t want to go all Toddlers and Tiaras on my boys, teaching them the honey boo boo look and hopping them up on swizzle sticks, but I sure would love the chance to have their future paid for.
You can’t win if you don’t enter, right? And look at that face!
