There are only three weeks left to go in the KaBOOM! Playspace Finder Sweepstakes! For those who haven't been briefed, here's the deal:
1. Every week we give away a prize (or prize package) valued between $100 and $200 to one lucky winner.
2. The winner is chosen from those who entered at least one playspace with a photo into the KaBOOM! Playspace Finder that week.
3. Each time you enter a playspace with a photo, it counts as an entry. No messy forms to fill out, plus your odds of winning go up as you add more playspaces!
4. Each week's sweepstakes starts on Tuesday (Eastern time) and ends the following Monday at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time. So the only eligible playspaces for that week's contests are those entered during that timeframe.
That being said, who wants to win an Elmo Live and an MLB Pitching Machine?
