A creative essay and few dollars are all you need to win a mansion!
Because of health problems, a woman in Calgary, Alberta, is holding a contest to give away her home valued at $1.6 million.
All you have to do is email an essay to the owner, Alla Wagner, about why you deserve the house. There is an small entry fee of $25 Canadian.
Wagner said she expects to receive tens of thousands of entries.
She is allowing people to choose the format of their entry and simply answer the question: “Why would moving to this lakefront dream home change your life?”
A panel of judges will then pick the winner.
Entries can be submitted through April 5.
Being someone used to a cosmopolitan lifestyle, living in the country was doubtful for me, until my family visited my friend in Millarville. Straightaway, I fell in love with the rolling hills, rich vegetation and felt a sense of belonging and freedom.
Every time we travelled to our friend’s property, we would drive by the beautiful pond and the new development area that mesmerized my family, so we were determined to live here.
