Smile and You Could Win a Vacation to Hawaii

imageImagine digging your toes into the golden sand at a crescent shaped beach while gazing across the intense shades of the Pacific’s blues. Now hear the sound of the tradewinds blowing through the palm fronds and feel the warmth of the sun. Did that make you start to smile? Would a free vacation to Hawaii make you smile? Surely that would bring a smile, right? Well, here’s your chance to win a free vacation for two to Maui! The folks at the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau are sponsoring a contest called “Hawaii: A Thousand Reasons to Smile.”

While this contest is aimed at Bay Area (San Francisco, Palo Alto, San Jose, etc.) residents, I confirmed that it is open to everyone. If you win, you just have to make your own way to San Francisco to fly from there to Hawaii.

The prize package includes:

  • Roundtrip coach tickets for two from San Francisco (SFO) to Kahului, Maui (OGG) on Hawaiian Airlines
  • Four nights accommodation at the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa
  • Helicopter tour for two on Blue Hawaiian Helicopters

Contest entry is simple, all you need to do is provide your contact details, upload a photo of your best smile, and mention something about Hawaii that makes your smile. You can read all the official rules and enter at

For Bay Area residents, be sure to check out the special Bay Area Events tab at this link I’m just a tad jealous of all the Hawaii-themed menus, entertainment and more trip giveaways that will be offered for the month of March in the Bay.

I’d love for a Go Visit Hawaii reader to win this contest. Good luck!

  1. People coming to visit us here on Maui makes me smile 🙂

  2. @ Liza (A Maui Blog) and I’m sure they’re smiling right back at ya! 🙂

  3. I know a young couple who live in Kentucky. They are planning to get married on May 21st. I asked the husband-to-be where they were going on their honeymoon, and he said, “no $, no honeymoon”. They have 5 children… they NEED a honeymoon. I’m looking for a way to help get them a honeymoon. Any ideas would be appreciated.
