Here is a cool tidbit from CBA enews that I wanted to pass along to my readers post haste. If you win the car because you saw this contest here first, you need to bring it to Boise and take me for a spin. Well, okay. That might be too much to ask. At the very least, get a picture taken of you in the car and send it to me. Agreed?
In a ground-breaking partnership between publishing and automotive industries, Thomas Nelson Publishers, best-selling author Ted Dekker, and brandWAVES will join forces with Chevrolet to present “The Search for the Lost Books of History,” a nationwide alternative reality treasure hunt based on Dekker’s young-adult fiction, “The Lost Book” series. Throughout the sweepstakes, participants may qualify to win a myriad of top-dollar prizes, including the grand prize of a 2008 Chevy Cobalt. Complete contest details are at www.booksofhistory.com. The official launch of the 10-week contest is Mar. 6.
Presentation of the grand prize will take place at the music festival, Icthus 2008 in Wilmore, KY.
The core focus of the contest is to reinforce the importance and fun of reading to young-adult students. During the course of the competition, Chevy will provide 10,000 free special-edition copies of Chosen, the first title in the series, to middle and high school students in the Southeast.
