Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 3, 2008
Put away the mop bucket, set aside the scrub brushes and store the old dust rags. Weiman Products is offering consumers the chance to win a one-year break from their house cleaning routine. Weiman Product's annual "Maid for a Year" contest, which runs through July 31, 2008, will award five U.S. residents free house cleaning services from Merry Maids every other week for a year. Consumers can enter the contest by logging onto http://www.weiman.com/contest. Contest winners will be announced by mid-August 2008.
Carl DeMasi, Weiman Products president and CEO, says the goal of the contest is to recognize the importance of house cleaning while also acknowledging that multi-tasking consumers are overworked and overstressed. "As household cleaning product experts, we are focused on creating solutions that make consumers' lives easier, save time and create the good feeling of clean - in and around the home. Our Maid for a Year contest allows consumers to talk about their house cleaning challenges and rewards five of them with a year of free house cleaning service."
All U.S. residents 18 years and older can submit a 250-word or less essay through July 31, 2008. Contest entries may be submitted online at http://www.weiman.com/contest or mailed to Weiman "Maid for a Year" Contest, 755 Tri-State Parkway, Gurnee, IL 60031. Essays must describe what the feeling of clean means to the entrant and why he or she needs and deserves maid service. Essays will be judged by an independent judging organization on the following criteria: the description of what the good feeling of clean means to the entrant, why the entrant needs/deserves maid service and the originality and creativity of the essay.
Contest entries are limited to one per person and purchase is not necessary to enter or win. Official rules and regulations will be available at http://www.weiman.com/contest.
