Cleveland, Ohio – Want to win your own “Major Award” – just like the Old Man? In honor of the 3oth anniversary of “A Christmas Story,”Positively Cleveland has launched a leg lamp contest. Yes, you too can win your own Major Award to show proudly in your window – it sure beats that Ovaltine decoder ring!
Even better, you can do it by having fun. To enter to win the full-sized 50-inch leg lamp all you need to do is to take a photo of a festive Cleveland event, attraction, food or beverage – “whatever defines the holiday season for you.”
Then, upload your photo to the “Win a Leg Lamp” tab on Positively Cleveland’s Facebook page or hashtag the image #HomeinCLE on Twitter or Instagram.
“The contest is a way for Clevelanders to spread not only their holiday cheer, but the positive message of all the exciting events occurring in the region this holiday season” says Communications Manager Jennifer Kramer. “Using the iconic leg lamp as the contest’s ‘Major Award’ gives Clevelanders another way to showcase their hometown pride and perpetuate the magic of a truly classic holiday film, created right here in our own backyard. ”
Entries will be accepted through Dec. 31. You may enter more than one picture. Each time a new picture is posted, your name will be entered. One winner will be selected at random to receive a 50-inch Leg Lamp.
The contest is just one of many events going on around town in honor of the 30thanniversary of the classic 1983 holiday film about little Ralphie Parker, his Old Man and his dreams of a Red Ryder BB Gun. Others events include theaters productions, a convention and cast appearances.
Look for extended “A Christmas Story” coverage on Cleveland.com and in The Plain Dealer, including stories by Movie Critic Clint O’Connor, Television Critic Mark Dawidziak and Theater Critic Andrea Simakis.
