DINNER OF A LIFETIME ESSAY CONTEST

August 23, 2002

CLEARFIELD, UT -- Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have dinner with your favorite screen idol? What about a former President, or a future relative? If there has ever been anyone that you have always wanted the opportunity to spend an hour or two with over dinner, and have all of your questions answered, now is your chance to explore that possibility.

Lifetime Products, Inc. is giving away a Thanksgiving trip for four to New York City, - including airfare, hotel accommodations, and spending cash - to the person with the most persuasive and creative answer to the question: Who would you most like to sit next to at the Thanksgiving dinner table? A panel of judges, designated by Lifetime®, will judge the essays on the following three criteria: Originality (25%), Creativity (35%), and Reasoning (40%). Ten runners-up will receive a Lifetime® table and set of Lifetime® chairs. All submissions must be received no later than October 15, 2002, and winners will be notified by November 1, 2002.

The person you choose to write about can be a celebrity, politician, athlete, artist, musician, friend or family member; they can be from the past, present or future; they can be real, fictitious, or hypothetical. Explore the possibilities of having this person sit next to you for an hour or two over a turkey and mashed potatoes dinner - What conversations might you share? What questions would you ask? How would the evening change or affect your life? Be as creative as you like in an essay of 1,000 words or less.

Thanksgiving is a time when there are always extra faces around the dinner table – and most people, at one time or another, have shared this meal at a spare folding table. Lifetime Products, Inc. is the world’s largest manufacturer of plastic folding tables and chairs.  Their products are sturdy, lightweight, and will not crack, chip or peel. Best of all, they are stain resistant and easy to clean – neither turkey gravy nor cranberry sauce will stain Lifetime® tables or chairs.

Now sitting at the spare table, with a guest of your choosing beside you, is an experience to look forward to.

With Lifetime®, there is always room for one more at dinner with folding tables and chairs fit for a king – be it King George VI of England, or Elvis Presley, the King of Rock n’ Roll!
