Prize Drawing

A prize drawing will be held at the conclusion of the project as a way to thank boaters for their participation in this survey. The prize drawing is only available to those who received a letter in May inviting them to take part in the survey and who completed the monthly questionnaires.

Each month, the names of those who complete the questionnaire will be entered into the drawing for a chance to win the grand prize of $1,000. However, the chances of winning are greatly improved if people continue to provide monthly information throughout the boating season.

In addition, those who complete each monthly questionnaire will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a prize of $100 for that month. One $100 prize will be awarded for each of the five months that this study is being conducted.

Additional prizes will be added, so please check back often for a list of those prizes.

We would like to thank the following companies and organizations who have kindly donated prizes for the end-of-season or monthly prize drawings.

Massachusetts Ocean Partnership
$1,000 grand prize
