Their summer giveaway titled Pinpoint Your Summer, kicks off on Memorial Day and will continue through Labor Day (May 31st - Sept 2nd, 2013). This giveaway invites visitors and local residents to get out and enjoy select Minneapolis-St. Paul area attractions, breweries, fairs & festivals, outdoor activities, parks & lakes, sporting events and walks & runs.

“This giveaway allows participants to select, or pinpoint, the activities they want to try this summer,” said Lindsay Spiros, Sales & Marketing Manager at Minneapolis Northwest.  “We hope it entices them to try something new and encourage others to do the same. There are tons of opportunities in Minneapolis this summer.”

Giveaway Details
Minneapolis Northwest has made a list of their favorite summer locations.  This list can be found on the official entry page at www.mnwcontests.com.  Participants are asked to go to any of the listed locations, take photos and share them with Minneapolis Northwest in order to be entered to win the Pinpoint Your Summer giveaway.

There's only one catch. Submitted photos must show the participant wearing or holding the official Pinpoint Your Summer button; it must be visible within the photo for the photo to count as an entry (buttons can be ordered through www.mnwcontests.com- free of charge).

Every photo submitted via the official entry form between May 31st and September 2nd, 2013 may be counted as a giveaway entry.  Minneapolis Northwest will allow one entry per location or activity (max 100 entries).  This giveaway goes throughout the summer and Minneapolis Northwest encourages participants to submit multiple photos – the more photos submitted, the higher the chances are of winning the grand prize.
