Toes in the sand.
On a tropical island.
It sounds like a dream, right?
For 31 nurses, teachers, moms, and/or active or retired military personnel, it won’t be a dream this May. It will be a reality through their Maycation Sweepstakes, where they’ll be celebrating (deep breath) Mother’s Day, Military Appreciation Month, Teacher Appreciation Week, and National Nurses Day.
If you are a nurse, teacher, mom, and/or an active or retired military member– or if you know someone who is– Sandals wants you to nominate yourself or them to win.
And what are they giving away, exactly?
Sandals Resorts is giving away 31 seven-day, six-night vacations for two adults. If you–or the deserving person you nominate– wins, your vacation could be in Jamaica, Antigua, and the Bahamas. Sandals Resorts has mentioned that four winners will get to vacation in a Butler/Love Nest Suite. That means 24-hour room service and a butler (because who doesn’t need a butler for vacation?). The other winners will have the chance to vacation in a deluxe suite (not too shabby!)
While the vacation is free for winners, transportation to the resort is not. Winners will need to pony up for airfare and any other auxiliary travel costs they incur.
Here’s how to enter
Nominations are being taken right now through 11:59 PM EST on May 30. You can click here to be taken to the nomination page. You’ll need to include some identifying information about yourself and the nominee as well as write a 250-word essay on why the nominee rocks. (And yes, you can nominate yourself!) You’ll also need to upload a photo of the nominee.
The giveaways begin May 10 and last until May 31. While it’s not in the rules, it stands to reason that the earlier you submit a nomination, the more chance your nominee may have at winning.
