I have been once before (Fort Wayne, Indiana) and I had a marvelous time. I met so many wonderful people and I won great prizes. I also learned a great deal about snail mail sweeps.

If I win the trip to Boston, I'd like to learn more about Social Media sweeps which still kinda confuse me...but more than learning, I'd honestly just like to go to see some folks again.

Good Luck Y'All!!!!!!

2015 National Sweepstakes Convention - Sweepstakes Entry
To Enter:

Post why you would want to attend a National Sweepstakes Convention and what you might hope to learn.

I have been to several Sweepstakes Conventions, but I still always learn something new! I would like to learn more about skill contests. These are usually a little more intimidating, but on the other hand, they get less entries and require a little more work, so the chances of winning are higher.

If you have attended before tell us what you have enjoyed about past conventions and what you are looking forward to at this convention!

What I have enjoyed the most about past Conventions is seeing old friends and making new ones! It's like a big family reunion each year. I love the feeling of so much positive energy in one room full of sweepers, who will cheer for your win, just as if they had won themselves! The veteran sweepers are always willing to help a newbie, and "show them the ropes"!

I would look forward to any fun optional events, since I have never been to the Boston area. I enjoy hearing from presenters, who may either teach you something about sweeping, or share their story of a big win! And last but not least, there are always the daily sessions with lots of wonderful PRIZES!

I love going to conventions. I want to go because it's a chance for me to make friends with people all across the country. I'm always anxious to learn new sweeping techniques. When I've gone in the past, it's really always about getting to see my friends that I only see once a year. That and the chance to win a nice prize.

I've never been to a National Sweepstakes Convention, so this opportunity is very exciting for me. I'd love to learn the "tricks of the trade" (for lack of a more accurate description). The main reason I'd like to attend Boston this year is because I would like to meet fellow sweepers. Just this morning I was talking with someone (via PM on FB) who I haven't met yet. It would be so wonderful if I could meet her in person--she's been supportive and encouraging. The enthusiasm for this event is exhilarating! I'd love to be part of this "Wicked Awesome" experience! Thanks for the opportunity.

Every year, I read about all the fun people have at the convention, and I look at the pictures and wonder why I have never made plans to attend. It would be great to go and learn new tips and tricks.
Also, I've never been to Boston, and one of my bffs is originally from there, so maybe she'd tag along.
