Grandparents “Words To Live By” Contest

Posted by Kristie Wells on August 14, 2013 in Contest

What’s the one thing you want your grandkids to know? Share your best advice and you could win a free AncestryDNA Kit.

Advice 2

 

You’ve seen it all and learned a lot along the way. Now, it’s your turn to share—whether the advice is your own or was passed down to you from your parents and grandparents.

 

We’ve partnered with Grandparents.com to gather the #1 piece of advice you want your grandkids to know—and by doing so, you will automatically be entered to win an AncestryDNA Kit (value: $99), where you’ll discover your family’s ethnic heritage and find out.

 

Send an email to contest@grandparents.com with your advice and a photo of you and your grandkids (and be sure to include your name and telephone number so we can contact you).

 

Five prize winners will be announced on the Grandparents.com Facebook page on Grandparents Day, September 8th. The top 10 submissions and photos will also be featured on Grandparents.com.

 

So get your photos out, and send your advice in. We cannot wait to hear it!

I’m sad that I can’t enter this contest. I was never able to have children. If I had been able to and then had grandchildren, what I would use for “Word To Live By” is: Family Comes First. Researching where you came from is such an important part of know who you are and why you are the person you’ve become or are becoming.
