Invitation to enter "My Favorite Year" contest

Identify locations of photos attached - winner receives a Padrone's Pizza

This week’s Icon contest took 147 years to put together. 

The Icon invites viewers to enter “My Favorite Year” contest. The winner will receive a 14-inch, 1-item Padrone’s Pizza. 

Here’s how to play:
• Between today and Thursday, May 21, the Icon will post 10 photo from Main Street Bluffton buildings that have years listed on them. The photos will be post by 7 a.m. each morning of the contest, on the following schedule:

• Photos 1, 2, 3 on Monday (see the photos below)
• Photos 4, 5, 6 on Tuesday
• Photos 7, 8, 9 on Wednesday
• Photo 10 on Thursday 

Photos 1 through 10 will be repeated on Thursday

• Contestants need to identify the location of each photo. We accept street addresses or building names. Each correct answer is worth 1 point.

• All the years are found on Main Street between Elm and College, with one exception.  It’s a “Bonus” photo and it is worth 5 points. We won’t tell you when that photo will be posted. You’ll have to figure that out yourself.

• A couple other considerations - 
   It’s possible that the same building could be featured more than one time in this contest. 

   • The Bonus photo is in Bluffton, close to, but not on Main Street.

   • The Icon will repeat all 10 photos again, on Thursday - 
     So, if you miss one day, don't worry

   • The photos will be posted on Facebook, and there are always viewers who think they should comment on the photo location in the Facebook comments. We will not accept entries posted on Facebook. 

• The deadline to enter is 6 p.m. on Sunday, May 24.

• Answers must be emailed to info@blufftonicon.com with the message line reading: “My Favorite Year Contest.”

• In the event of a tie, the first entry received with the most points wins.

• A Word document entry form is posted today as a story attachment. The entry form will be posted again on Thursday. Contestants should use the form when entering.

• Contestants may enter as often as they wish, but may use their own name only one time.
