Through the annual FTF Teen Travel Writing Scholarship contest, we've learned that nearly 30% of students travel away from home with their school teams or on sports related tours
New York, NY (Vocus) January 19, 2009
After seeing a rising trend in sports-related travel among teens and students, Family Travel Forum, the award-winning family vacation media company, has joined with Pepsi in a Super Bowl giveaway to encourage fans to write about their involvement in sports.
Until January 25, 2009, Family Travel Forum will be scouting the sports-related travel tales posted to its travelBIGO website to find the winner of an Ultimate Super Bowl Party Pack provided by Pepsi. This year, a lucky sports fan and his or her friends won't have to fund their Super Bowl party – Pepsi will deliver all the party perks right to their door. The Ultimate Pepsi Super Bowl Party Pack promotion includes:
- 1 football
- 1 beverage pail
- 1 snack helmet
- 2 key chains
- 2 hats
- 2 t-shirts
- 5 Pepsi
- 24 pack coupons
- 5 Frito Lay coupons
All a sports fan needs to do is submit a sports tale with a photo, video or other illustration to travelBIGO.com. Family Travel Forum's editors will select the most fun sports-related travel tale and send the author Pepsi's gift basket -- before the Big Day, of course.
"Through the annual FTF Teen Travel Writing Scholarship contest, we've learned that nearly 30% of students travel away from home with their school teams or on sports related tours," notes publisher John Manton. "Pepsi's fun Super Bowl giveaway was a natural way for us to encourage athletes and sports fans to share their travel tales with their peers."
