Here in Australia we're very fortunate to have many great competitions with all sorts of awesome prizes, large and small. Have you ever won a big prize in a competition? Which company held the competition, what was the prize and what did you do to win?
I've only ever won some books in competitions. However, being the big book nerd that I am, I consider these big prizes, and have always been thrilled. Plus, I've found some of my favourite books this way, so it really has been win/win.
I haven't but my Godmother's daughter one "Mum Melt the Ice" competition in 1973... She had to guess how long it would take a large block of ice encasing a bottle of roll on deodorant to melt.... and she won by about a minute.
Sorry, forgot to add, my Godmother's daughter won a car however she had it for a couple of weeks then ran straight into the back of a light blue car which happened to be the same colour of the sky, which is why she didn't see it.
Years ago I won $10,000.00 in a competition run by a local club. I've also won a laptop and printer in competitions as well as several small lotto prizes and an all expenses paid interstate trip for 4 but the company who provided the trip just disappeared into thin air so never did experience that one.
Cant's say I've won a big prize like a car or any thing like that, but I won a magazine subscription for about a month, and I was happy with that, and I won a crochet blanket from my mum's retirement village in a raffle that was ok, I did'nt expect to win, I gave it more as a donation as they weren;#'t selling many tickets.
No, nothing big, just a lot of small prizes, that I answered on another of these questions, some time ago. A friend's father took a lottery ticket to the newsagents, thinking he'd won $5, but he'd actually won $25,000!
