If You're 13-19, You Could Win a Cool $30,000

ImixamericaI just found out about this Awesome Cold Stone Contest. The contest is only open to teenagers, 13 to 19 years of age who are residents of the United States. Since I have a couple of those teenagers in my house, I'm definitely going to let them know about it. Cory can get quite creative in the kitchen. Granted, it's usually with ramen noodles and the contents of my spice cabinet, but I bet he'd come up with some good-tasting ice cream, too.

This Cold Stone Contest lets teenagers create their own Signature Creation using any ingredients found at a Cold Stone Creamery, give it a cool name, get their friends and family to buy it and then vote online. The winner gets $30,000. Now that's plain icy cool, isn't it?

The contest is divided into four progressive brackets, and the first one runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day, so now is the time to go online, sign up, and fill out the Application Questionnaire.
The voting deadline is December 31, 2008, and winners will be announced in January 2009.

So, if you, or someone you know, is 13 to 19 years of age, head on over to to enter. $30,000 could buy a lot of ice cream! Actually, reading through the contest rules and information, it looks like it's a $30,000 value pack that is automotive, cellular, computer, and/or travel related. Does that mean someone could win a new car? A computer for school? A great trip? Sounds cool, doesn't it?

Besides my own teenagers, I will be telling all my Facebook and MySpace friends who are 13-19. I'd love to see one of them win. Oh, and if someone I know gets into the finals, I will be asking every single one of you to vote! If you, or your teenager, get into the finals, let me know, and I'gll vote, too.
