The first contestant to correctly guess both state and city wins a free souvenir T-shirt from our new town. The first contestant to correctly guess the state wins a free pair of sparkly dangle earrings. Send contest entries, one entry per person, per day, to email@example.com.

Employees and volunteers of Obit City are barred from entering, in addition to relatives, close friends and bedmates of the Obit City staff. Everyone else is fair game. Now get busy and win that T-shirt!
