AAA invites 8th graders to enter travel contest
Florida eighth graders still have time to enter AAA’s “Discovery Crew” travel contest. The final day for submissions is Friday, Sept. 21.
Sixty students will win free round trip airfare to Amsterdam, travel insurance, money for passports, and a seven-night river cruise – including all meals and excursions – through the Netherlands and Belgium.
Students can enter for a chance to win at AAA.com/DiscoveryCrew.
To be eligible, students must be:
– Entering the 8th grade in good standing
– At least 13 years old
– Reside in Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, Nebraska, North Dakota, Tennessee, Wisconsin, or select areas of Illinois, Indiana, or Minnesota
– Students can confirm eligibility when visiting AAA.com/DiscoveryCrew
Entrants are not required to be AAA members.
Winners will be selected based on:
– A creative selfie, showcasing their love for travel
– Their answers to three essay questions:
— Why do you want to go on this trip?
— How do rivers affect the communities through which they run?
— During the trip, you’ll meet many people. In what ways do you expect the people you meet to be similar to and different from yourself and your friends and family?
Winners will be notified beginning in October. Winning students will bring one parent or legal guardian to serve as a chaperone. Each pair will share a stateroom while sailing on AmaWaterways’ “AmaDante” river cruise ship, from March 28 April 4, 2019.
