To help raise awareness and support for those affected by a cancer diagnosis, Tic Tac mints will once again donate $100,000 to CancerCare. In addition, they’ve launched the Extraordinary Caregiver Contest on the Tic Tac USA Facebook page! When you nominate a deserving caregiver who has dedicated him/herself to someone affected by cancer, this person has the opportunity to be named one of three extraordinary caregivers who will receive $2,500 awarded in the form of a check toward an extraordinary experience! And there’s more great news: The nominators of the three winning entries will each receive a $500 gift card! (Gift card vendor to be selected by Sponsor.)
Nomination Period (August 26–October 3): Consumers are called to shake things up by submitting an original essay nominating the most deserving caregiver who has dedicated him/herself to helping those affected by cancer.
Finalists Notified (October 12-26): Six finalist entries will be chosen by a panel of judges. The Entrants of the finalist entries and those named in the finalist entries will be notified directly.
Consumer Voting Period (November 1-11): The six finalist entries will be posted on the Tic Tac USA Facebook page and consumers will get the chance to vote for the finalist entries that they feel describe the most deserving caregivers.
Caregivers Honored (On or around November 18): The caregivers named in the top three finalist entries (based on a combination of judges’ scores and consumer votes) will each win $2,500, while the entrants of those winning entries will each receive a $500 gift card.
