Have you ever won a contest?

[deleted account] ( 11 moms have responded )

A little town near here has a Red, White and Blueberry festival every year during 4th of July weekend. Last year I made Lemon Blueberry Muffins for the blueberry cooking contest. I won first prize in the breakfast category. I got $25 cash!

Have you ever won a contest? It doesn't have to be "official" or include a prize!

Yes I did , I had to submit a 103 word blurb about my mom or grandmother for mothers day to a raido station... Long story short ... I won a diamond ring... and Since it was my grandmother I submitted it about and it was my grandparents 50th wedding Anniversary and my grandfather never bought her a diamond ring like he had promised all those years ago. My grandmother was also a foster mother for 34 years taking car of 117 fostkids over that time.. and she takes care of my kids while I am at work. I figured after raising that may kids she at least deserved some kind of diamond. I gave her the Ring. They interviewed us on the radio and some of the foster babys even called her to say they had heard about it on the radio...

I used to dance competitively and won lots of stuff from that. I also won a photo contest once and got $100 plus my picture was put into a really nice hardcover book (which I bought for $50+tax+shipping = about $80 - lol).

I won 1000 Air Miles in a radio contest, which was cool. And I recently won a $20 gift certificate to our local winery as a door prize.

So, nothing HUGE, but not too bad, either.

I've won several best photo contests, but nothing super exciting. Let me think some more.

P.S. I'm back!

pfffft. I don't think I ever won anything. EVER! I think think only thing that would come close is getting 1st chair in an All City Orchestra (Viola) in middle school. What I got was the pride, but that was good enough :)
