Cheerios Milestones Contest & Giveaway (Closed)

Cheerios is celebrating the milestones of all kids across the country with a new contest that just started. You could have your child featured on a special edition Cheerios Box and WIN $10,000 towards an RESP from TD Canada Trust.

For the Cheerios Milestones Contest, proud parents can upload a picture of their angel(s) on the site and share how Cheerios has played a special part in your child’s early years.

And the prizes are great. The grand prize winner will receive $10,000 CDN, to be applied as a one-time contribution into a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP). Plus everything in the ‘second prize’ category.

There are also 20 second prizes available (one will be awarded to the grand prize winner). For the second prize winners, the submitted photo of each will be included in a photo mosaic to be featured on a Cheerios package in 2011. Each second prize winner will also receive Cheerios for one year; consisting of 24 vouchers which may be redeemed for boxes of Cheerios. The estimated retail value of each second prize is One Hundred Twenty Dollars Canadian ($120.00 CDN).

The winners will be determined by a panel of judges. And the entry deadline is December 15, 2010.

So get your cameras out, or dig through your old photo albums and get those milestone shots.

There are so many milestones to choose from so I know you will all have plenty of pictures to go through.

One of my favorite milestones was when Baby Bird said “mama” for the first time and meant “mama”. Just hearing what she was going to sound like melted my heart. I remember thinking that this must be what angels sound like when they sing.

I am thankful for every milestone we achieve together and I look forward to all of the ones to come.

So, that grand prize is a good one. Really, who couldn’t use help toward an RESP? If you are interested and want to enter, head on over to the Cheerios Milestones Contest site and upload a picture today.

Want to win something here? I have one of these, got a copy at a garage sale this summer, we love it. It’s a story book and you use Cheerios to fill in some parts of the story. Lot’s of fun.

One lucky This Bird’s Day reader is going to win a Cheerios Playbook to help with your child’s learning.

    First tooth, or should I say teeth. My twin boys got their first 2 teeth each, less than a day apart from each other. It was preceeded by almost a week of no sleep and lots of complaints from one boy, and an ‘oh look, he has teeth’ for the other.

    My son just started kindergarden. He was excited to jump on the big yellow bus. He had no tears, only smiles and waves. What a brave boy. If only mama was as strong.

    My daughter just lost both her front teeth – at the same time – she looks so cute – so beautiful. Her smile is priceless. Two front teeth for Christmas??
