Most of our contests in the past have been open to the entire public, but we wanted to run a contest just for our military families. We felt like a $1,000 home makeover would be a really cool prize for a military family.

LowVARates version of March Madness is upon us as the company is giving away a $1,000 Home Depot gift card to a military family.
The contest will run through the entire month of March and the winner will be selected and announced on LowVARates.com Facebook page on April 2nd.
Only military families are allowed to enter the contest and are required to submit a 250-500 word essay answering the question, “Why does your family support the U.S. Military and what would you use the $1000 Home Depot card for.” To enter the contest, military families can submit the essay to pr(at)lowvarates(dot)com.
Owner of LowVARates.com, Eric Kandell, wanted to run a contest to show the company’s support for our troops and their families.
“Most of our contests in the past have been open to the entire public, but we wanted to run a contest just for our military families,” Kandell said. “We felt like a $1,000 home makeover would be a really cool prize for a military family.”
LowVARates.com will join forces with a local military nonprofit organization to run the contest. The local nonprofit organization is in charge of selecting the winner of the $1,000 Home Depot card. The nominations will be submitted to LowVARates.com and handed over to the nonprofit organization to ensure the winner is selected without bias.
LowVARates.com currently runs weekly and monthly contests on its Facebook page and has given over $6,000 of prizes. However, the $1,000 military home makeover contest will be the largest prize the company has given to a family.
“We are constantly thinking of ways to give back to our troops and their families,” Kandell said. “The March military home makeover contest is intended to help out a deserving military family that has dedicated their lives to serving our great nation.”
LowVARates Facebook community has nearly 30,000 followers and has seen great growth over the past six months adding nearly 10,000 new fans.
Military families can enter the contest by visiting http://www.facebook.com/lowvarates or by submitting an essay to pr(at)lowvarates(dot)com
The essays must be submitted by Thursday March 29th by 5 pm MST and the entries must be affiliated with the U.S. military. Friends and family members may submit essays nominating a military family they feel deserves the prize.
