I entered a cover design contest about a year ago and was notified on Friday that I had won. Surfer magazine and Van's shoes and apparel. There were 3 winners selected each month and 1 grand prize winner. I was selected as one of the monthly winners. I get a pair of Van's shoes, some apparel, a year subscription to Surfer, and the cover design published in Surfer.

I'm guessing that the 36 monthly winners will be selected from to choose the grand prize winner. The grand prize is a trip to Oahu, Hawaii. The packages consist of one (1) roundtrip airfare to Hawaii, five (5) nights accommodations in Hawaii, one (1) rental car in Hawaii, one (1) year’s worth of Vans shoes, and one (1) year’s worth of Vans apparel.

I found out from a friend yesterday that the cover had been published in the Dec issue of Surfer. Keep you fingers crossed for me so that I will win the grand prize.:D

Nice Job and good luck on the grand prize. One question, what does a years worth of Vans shoes mean?
