With Halloween right around the corner, I’ve got candy on my mind. I recently came across a blog post from the National Confectioners Association about a Halloween costume contest they’re having. The NCA is looking for the best Halloween costume idea. The person with the winning idea will earn 10 pounds of their favorite candy! That’s right folks, 10 pounds of sugary, sweet goodness. You can check out the NCA’s Candy Dish Blog for more info on the contest.
Here are the basic rules:
• To enter the contest, leave a comment on the Candy Dish Blog post telling them about your cool and timely Halloween costume for this year. The costume idea should relate to current events, world news or pop culture. For example, I was planning to dress up as health care reform, but I don’t think it will be ready by Halloween.
• You can also qualify for extra chances to win. Mention the NCA contest and provide a link on Twitter, Facebook or your own blog and leave a separate comment showing NCA that you’ve done so. After a panel of celebrity bloggers picks a winner, the Candy Dish Blog staff will give away an additional prize to a randomly selected person who helped them promote the contest. So, for those of you keeping score that means they’re actually giving away FIVE prizes.
• Your entry must be received by Thursday, October 22. The NCA will announce the winners on Friday, October 23.
Remember, if you do happen to win no one said you had to share all your candy. Good Luck!
