Now, here's what you don't want to miss:
First up, a recap: We had a big winner in the Football Pick 'Em contest, which ran from the start of the NFL season in September through the Super Bowl on the first Sunday in February. William Coolidge won the $250 overall grand prize, while almost two dozen others won gift certificates worth more than $500 from local merchants.
Now, on to the good stuff: We're getting ready to launch our March contests and promotions!
First up, and we know you'll want to get involved in this one - the College Hoops Pick 'Em.
This year we're going bigger, with a $500 overall grand prize, along with round-by-round gift certificate prizes from local businesses! We're getting together with our media partners to make it our biggest bracket ever! You can register for that contest by going to the contest web site here. Once you're registered, we'll send you an email when the bracket is open for picking, just after Selection Sunday, March 17.
St. Patrick's Day Word Search and Find the Leprechaun
Speaking of March 17, our word searches are always popular, and this one will be the same - find your inner leprechaun as you look for the words hidden in the jumble. This word search will be in the Tuesday, March 12 Rutland Herald print edition. But keep your eyes peeled for an online contest, Find the Leprechaun! We will plant a leprechaun somewhere on our web site, and you'll need to find it and click on it, then follow the link to register for this gift certificate sweepstakes contest.
Summer Camp Contest
It's that time of year - when parents' thoughts turn to lazy summer days with nothing to do... wait, actually, it's time to panic, when you realize you have yet to figure out what your children will be doing all summer out of school. We've got a Summer Camp Guide for that, but we'll also have a short online contest with a couple of fun prizes that will give you summer ideas.
Finally, look for other snap contest emails, where we give away tickets to live events or other fun promotions. It's all coming to your inbox.
What's next this spring? We'll start the nominating process for the Best of the Best Readers Choice Awards. This is new, this is different, as the nominations will create the ballot that will be up for voting in May. We're excited for the change.
Spring Vermont Get Outside contest
The Easter Scramble - Unscramble the words, send it in and you'll be entered to win an Easter ham!
That's all for this edition of the Rutland Herald roundup.
As always, stay well and support your local businesses!
