Win free gas in T-G contest

Wednesday, July 8, 2009

The Times-Gazette and six area bp gas locations will give three winners a share of $500 in gasoline for their summer travels as part of the "Big $500 Gas Up for Summer Give-Away."

On July 24, the Times-Gazette will publish a special section in which a secret number of logos will be hidden throughout advertising messages. Readers can participate in the contest by counting all the logos throughout the publication (not including its front page) and entering the total number of logos found in an entry form to be included with the section.

A random drawing of correct entries will be held, with a total of $500 to be given away to three winners: $250 for first prize, $150 for second prize and $100 for third prize.

The form can be hand-delivered to any of the participating bp locations:

  • The Wedge bp, 401 Belmont Ave.
  • Union Street bp, 801 Union St.
  • Serve & Go bp, U.S. 231 North
  • Serve & Go bp, 764 Madison St.
  • Serve & Go bp, 2151 North Jackson St., Tullahoma
  • Jackson Street bp, 813 North Jackson St., Tullahoma

It can also be hand-delivered to the Times-Gazette, 323 East Depot St., or mailed to The Big $500 Gas up for Summer Give-Away, Shelbyville Times-Gazette, P.O. Box 380, Shelbyville, TN 37162.

Boxes for entry collection will be available at all locations. No copies will be accepted. All entries must be received by 5 p.m., Thursday, July 30, 2009.

Readers who want to win the free gas will pay close attention to each of the advertising messages in the supplement to find all of the logos.
