As a little kid, it's exhilirating to hop on a bike and ride the day away on two wheels. It offers complete freedom, feeling the wind in your face and blowing through your hair. But, it's the day you turn 16 and your parents hand you over the keys to the family car is when you know ultimate freedom. Many kids countdown the days until they turn 16, and many adults countdown the hours in which they can leave the office and hop in their car. It provides an escape, a chance for you to be alone with your own thoughts and the sounds of the radio with the windows rolled down and sun hitting your head from the sunroof. Have you ever considered what makes this possible?
Tires are a crucial, often overlooked element to your daily road trip and without them you would not have the solace of the road. From the daily grind of commutes and trips to the grocery store, to unforgettable events like that day you snap your firstborn's carseat into the backseat at the hospital, or Spring Break with old friends, tires keep you moving. Cooper Tire knows just that, which is why they are pleased to announce they are commemorating life's everyday trips with the "My Every Day Road Trip" contest. This contest allows participants the chance to earn an entire year of free gas.
From March 1 through March 29, Cooper Tire's Facebook fans can share their not-so-everyday road trip stories by submitting video, written stories or video. Winners will be selected based on the creativity, originality and passion for Cooper Tires.
The top story will win $100 gift card to use toward gas for one week. The top photo will win a $500 gift card to use toward gas for one month. The top five videos will win a set of four new Cooper Tires and will move forward to the final phase of the competition. The final phase will allow Cooper Tire Facebook fans to vote on their favorites. The video with the most votes will win a $5,000 gift card for gas for the entire year. Making sure more road trips will be had!
Fans will also have the chance to win big. Cooper Tires is offering the chance to win a Road Trip Kit just for voting. Starting April 15, fans can place votes for their favorite video winner to win the grand prize. For each vote, fans will be submitted for the chance to win.
