WANTED: Ail-Around Super Do-It-Yourselfer

| May/June 1998

If you know somebody that personifies the word 'handy,' now is the time to write about their gifted talents and maybe win a prize for their efforts and yours.

WD-40 Company announces the '1998 WD-40 Search for the Handiest Americans' contest. You are invited to write an essay about who you think is the handiest person in America and why. Only one nomination per person.

Entrants will be divided into two simple groups Handiest Male and Handiest Female. Grand prizes will be awarded to the top essay writers and their choice for 'Handiest American' based on originality, creativity, concept, humor, and sincerity. First place winners in each category will receive a trip to the home of WD-40 Company, San Diego, California, that will include air transportation on American Airlines, lodging for four nights at the Doubletree Hotel in Mission Valley, and an Avis rental car. In addition to the grand prize, other prizes, including WD-40 products and gear, will be awarded.

To enter, contestants must submit an essay of no more than 500 words, double-spaced typed or computer generated on 8 x 11 inch paper describing their choice for 'Handiest American.' The essay should be attached to a photograph of their choice for 'Handiest American' and include name, age, Social Security number, address, and phone number of the person nominated and the entrant on a separate page. The limitations are only dependent upon the essayist's imagination and creativity.
