What do your kids want to be when they grow up? My daughter is currently set on being a rock star. She doesn’t seem to be very clear about what a rock star actually does, but that’s what she has her heart set on right now. I have a strong feeling that will change (many times) before she reaches college age, but whatever she ends up deciding she wants to be (even if it is a rock star) I want to do everything I can to help make her dreams come to life.
Don’t we all want that for our kids?
Whatever your kiddo decides they want to be, wouldn’t $10,000 go a long way toward helping them achieve that goal? I think so too, that’s why I am excited to tell you about the Gerber Life Bring Dreams to Life Video Contest. Gerber wants to hear about your kiddos dreams and is hosting a video contest where one lucky grand prize winner will receive a $10,000 Gerber Life College Plan. Use it for college, for books or maybe even a guitar for your rock star — it’s up to you.
How to enter the Bring Dreams to Life Video Contest
Step 1 – Create a video of your child (who must be 8 years or younger) explaining what he or she dreams of being when they grow up. (If your child is too young to talk, feel free to add your own thoughts.) Be creative!
Step 2 – Submit your video to the Bring Dreams to Life contest via the Gerber Life Facebook page before April 1, 2013.
Step 3 – Share your child’s video with friends and family on Facebook. Videos with 100 or more votes qualify for the final round and a chance to win a $10,000 Gerber Life College Plan.
Pretty easy considering the prize is $10,000! (Plus 10 runner-ups will win a $100 Visa gift card.) And here’s a hint, so far the number of entries is really low.
So get to it, grab your camera or your smartphone and make a video of your kiddo telling the world about his/her dreams.
*** Be sure to leave a comment with your kid’s name and dream when you enter, I’d be happy to vote for you!
In addition to the Bring Dreams to Life Contest, I am giving away a $100 Visa Gift Card and a Gerber calculator and pen.
