Summer season promotions provide readers an opportunity to win

Isn’t it fun to win a prize?

Go to a carnival, win a stuffed animal.

Play a game in an arcade and win a toy.

Sometimes it takes skill to win. Sometimes it’s just luck.

No matter how the win comes about or what the price is, the thrill of winning is there.

We sense this when we email our readers or call them to let them know that they have won a prize in one of our online competitions.
