Entering contest
I have never had the pleasure of attending a convention even though I have been a member for many years. It would be nice to see the other members in person

PR Proud, My Wins

It would be a dream come true to win a trip to the convention,
as I have never had the opportunity to attend, I would love to meet
like-minded people that also enjoy this hobby.

I quit sweeping over a year ago. Winning will get me back into it.

I have always wanted to go to the National Sweepstakes Convention but have never been able to afford it. I would love to learn more about entering snail mail sweeps, and to meet other sweepers!

I haven't ever been to a national convention but have been to a mini convention. Absolutely love meeting sweepers. Also, would love to see Utah. I want to learn everything that I can soak up from the great old time sweepers.

I'd like to attend the National Sweepstakes Convention because I'm a long time sweeper (15 years and counting) and I've still yet to have much to show for it. It's a fun hobby and I've won some small things along the way that keep me interested, but I've never won a trip or a car or even anything worth over $400. I'd love to be able to socialize with and learn from my fellow sweepers and hopefully gain some newfound knowledge that will put me on a path to winning larger prizes! Plus, I think it'd just be a fun trip! I've always wanted to go to one of these sweepstake conventions and I've never been out west.

One - it's right in the middle of my vacation period before starting full-time fieldwork so it'd be perfect timing.
Also, I have never been to a convention before and think it would be an amazing experience. I don't know anyone else locally that does this. So it'd be great to meet other sweepers and learn from those with more experience.
