The good people over at The Mariners’ Museum in Newport News, sure know how to put together a fun contest for the summer! This simple promotion will be loads of fun for you and the kids, while giving your family a chance to win some pretty spectacular prizes!!
Here is all the info:
- Contest begins Friday, June 10th and ends Friday, August 5th.
- Each Friday, The Mariners’ Museum will release a clue on Instagram about a specific boat or ship that can be found on display at the museum.
- You will have one week to snap a pic or a selfie with the boat and share on Instagram using the hashtag #FindtheBoat — That’s your entry, it’s that easy!
Each entry will give you a chance to win a weekly prize valued at $100. The prizes change each week and are things like Busch Gardens tickets, restaurant and shopping gift cards and MORE! Every entry throughout the contest will also be compiled and a lucky GRAND Prize Winner will receive:
