“MADE in MICHIGAN MAKE it MICHIGAN” contest deadline is September 8

LANSING – House Speaker Pro Tempore Michael G. Sak (D-Grand Rapids) is urging residents who vacationed in Michigan this summer to submit their contest entries in order to be eligible to win a free “Destination Pure Michigan Adventure” vacation this fall. Announced in late June, Sak’s “MADE in MICHIGAN MAKE it MICHIGAN” (MiMMiM) campaign encouraged residents to travel the Great Lakes State during the summer months to experience all that Michigan has to offer.

“I have heard from countless residents in all corners of the Great Lakes state who spent their summer vacation experiencing the grandness of Michigan,” Sak said. “But I’m sure there are many more wonderful stories I haven’t heard. With Labor Day behind us, which marks the unofficial end of summer, I want to remind our residents to send me a summary of their wonderful summer experiences before our contest deadline passes. All you need to do is send me your story.”

Sak will hold a random drawing for a “Destination Pure Michigan Adventure” vacation this fall for residents who vacationed in Michigan over the summer. To enter the drawing, residents should e-mail their name, when and where they visited, their phone number and address to Residents can also include a photograph and an optional essay of 25 words or less describing their vacation. All entries must be received by Monday, Sept. 8.

Sak announced the MiMMiM plan at the official start of summer with the hope that when residents decided to pack their bags this summer, they would choose to experience the beauty and natural resources of the Great Lakes state.

“As many families across the country know, Michigan is a fantastic vacation destination,” Sak said. “By entering our contest and telling me about their summer getaways, our residents have the chance to experience more of the wonderful attractions Michigan has to offer. I urge any Michigan residents who vacationed in our beautiful state this summer to get their entries in as soon as possible.”
