Have A Gift for Wrapping?
Enter A National Gift-Wrapping Contest For The Chance To Win $10,000!


ST. PAUL, Minn., July 21, 2006 —When it comes to gift-wrapping, do family and friends continually marvel at your imaginative handiwork? Are you able to turn even the oddest-shaped gift into an exquisite showpiece? Think you can “outwrap” the pros who work in department stores? If so, then roll out your paper, unfurl your ribbon and pull out your handy tape dispenser. Now in its 10th year, The Scotch Brand Most Gifted Wrapper Contest, sponsored by 3M, will be held on Friday, December 1, 2006 in New York City’s quintessential holiday locale: Rockefeller Center.

On this date, eight gift-wrapping contestants — four amateurs and four professionals — will compete for a $10,000 grand prize, and the title of “America’s Most Gifted Wrapper” for 2006. The person who nominates the grand-prize winner will receive $1,000 as well!

So if you (or someone you know) has a gift for wrapping, it’s time to pen an entry! To be considered for the Scotch Brand Most Gifted Wrapper Contest, describe in an essay of 100 words or less why the nominee has what it takes (i.e. gift-wrapping experience, creativity and expertise) to be crowned “America’s Most Gifted Wrapper.” Be sure to include the following:

  • Your name, home address, city, state, zip code, daytime phone number, fax number and e-mail address (if available).

  • Nominee’s name, home address, city, state, zip code, daytime phone number, fax number and e-mail address (if available).

  • Whether the nominee is entering as a professional or amateur. (Anyone who is currently or has previously earned income as a gift wrapper at a department store, specialty store, etc. is considered a professional.)

Entries must be received no later than October 2, 2006 and can be submitted by mail, fax or e-mail to:
Scotch Brand Most Gifted Wrapper Contest, c/o Hunter Public Relations, 41 Madison Avenue, 5th Floor, New York, New York 10010; fax: (212) 679-6607; e-mail: giftedwrapper@hunterpr.com.
