It's Time for Some Kentucky Derby Sweepstakes! Yay!

As some of you may be aware, I am a big fan of the Kentucky Derby. I had horses for a number of years, and this is one way to continue some relationship with these beautiful and majestic creatures. It is also an exciting sport! In fact, they say that the Kentucky Derby is the most exciting two minutes in sports. I do believe it.

Aside from getting to know the horses, the Kentucky Derby offers a good look at fashion. It is always fun to see what the ladies are wearing. In recent years, it seems that even the men are beginning to break out of the norm, and are taking some fashion risks.

So, as the excitement builds, and the big day looms closer, Kentucky Derby Sweepstakes are on the agenda for today!

Road to the Kentucky Derby Sweepstakes

This sweeps requires you to enter a code, which can be found on their YouTube videos and various other places. You are allowed one entry per code, so I'd recommend writing each code down once you use it, so you aren't duplicating entries.

2 VIP tickets to Kentucky Derby 141
2 VIP tickets to Kentucky Oaks 141

Magazine Sponsor Giveaways!

No, these are not giveaways for magazines. These are the sweepstakes that give us access to winning the valuable products and loads of cash from magazine sponsors. These types of sweeps are always such fun! The products offered for prizes are often some of the most unique prizes you will find, and are always something useful, yet highly desirable. One more nice thing about these sweeps is that there are often multiple winners for each prize!

As for the cash prizes, magazines regularly offer some of the largest prizes. These and some other sweeps are regularly shared by multiple publications. This means that you will most often be allowed to enter from each site, to increase your chances. For instance, if daily entry is offered for a sweeps shared by three magazines, you can enter once each day on each magazine's website, for a total of three daily entries.

Generally speaking, you can win one sweepstakes from a particular magazine once every ninety days. However, you know the drill. Check to rules to see how often you are allowed to enter each sweeps, and if there are any specific requirements, such as this.

The one big thing to remember when entering magazine sweepstakes is to be sure that you don't subscribe to anything by accident. This is generally easy enough, with the option to click a link for entry without a free trial, or to pick "no, I don't want to subscribe" by a radio button. The point is to simply pay attention to these options, and only subscribe to what you genuinely want to.

These pages are regularly updated with new sweeps, so you can return at any time, week after week, month after month, year after year.

It's fun to browse through these sweeps, to see all the latest and greatest stuff out there. Of course, it's still more fun to win it...

Design a Duck Stamp for the State of California! Nationwide Entry!

The state of California is looking for a winning design for its duck stamp. A duck stamp is something that hunters must purchase on top of their regular hunting licenses, in order to legally hunt duck. The proceeds from the sales of duck stamps are spent on waterfowl-related conservation projects.

The specific duck chosen for this contest is the Scaup. Artists may choose to depict either the Lesser Scaup or the Greater Scaup in their entries. Pictured above is the Lesser Scaup.

The artist may use the medium of his or her choice, though the entry must be hand-drawn and the artist's own original design. No photography or digital art is allowed, and other exclusions do apply. Entrants will definitely want to read through the rules for the specifics of size and other design requirements.

Entries will start being accepted on April 25, 2014, and will be accepted through 4pm on May 23, 2014. It seems safe to presume that this is Pacific time.

Entrants must mail entries to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. Winning entry and runners up will be kept for display purposes for a period of time, all other entries will be returned by August 31, 2014, or the artists can pick them up.

This contest is open to U.S. residents, 18 or older as of February 19, 2014.

You can read more about the history of the California Duck Stamp here.
