FRANKFORT, Ky. - One lucky visitor to Kentucky Fish and Wildlife's Facebook site will win $650 in gift cards by entering the Shoot, Throw and Go sweepstakes by the end of the month.
"This sweepstakes is a way for us to engage and connect with our customer base through Facebook," said Brian Blank, public affairs director for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. "This way, we can keep people up to date with real time information that they highly value."
Already, more than 36,000 people are fans of the department's Facebook site, with the number growing daily.
To enter the contest, visit the department's Facebook site at www.facebook.com/kdfwr and click onto the sweepstakes page. Fill out a quick survey and you could be eligible to win $650 in gift cards from Dick's Sporting Goods. The deadline to enter is Nov. 30.
"We named this contest 'Shoot, Throw and Go' because many of our customers shoot a gun, throw a fishing lure and go enjoy the outdoors," Blank said. "The lucky winner of this random drawing will be able to stock up on their favorite sporting goods just in time for Christmas."
The winner of this contest will be notified within the first week of December.
