How does $5,000 for a one-minute fun task sound to you?
Well, somebody's going to get that kind of cash from Patch, and it may as well be you.
Patch has extended its Best Halloween Costume in America Contest, giving you more time to upload those photos of your kids -- or yourself -- to win the loot.
Last year, the , won. This year, we know for sure that one Iowa entry will win at least $250 -- and maybe the whole five grand.
Adults and children are eligible to enter. Parents can post costume photos of themselves and their families from this Halloween or from years past.
Here’s how to enter:
Simply click the green "Upload Photos and Videos" button above and upload your image (but first make sure you’re a registered Patch user).
Then add a caption with the name of the person in the photo and a description of the costume. To add a caption, click “Edit Photo” after uploading the image and fill in the caption line. Then click “Finished Editing.”
The contest runs from Oct. 15 to 11:59 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 5. National judges will choose 21 finalists from each Patch state and select one grand prize winner based on who has the most creative and innovative costume. Each state winner among the 21 finalists will receive $250, and one national grand-prize winner will receive $5,000.
If your costume is the best in Iowa and will put all others to shame, enter our contest now for the chance to win $5,000.
