Matchbox® Heroes Wanted™ Sweepstakes

(Disclosure: This post is part of a sponsored campaign with MomSelect.)

Calling all moms, dads, and grandparents of little ones- I have some exciting news from Matchbox® to share! To commemorate its 60 year anniversary, Matchbox® is honoring heroes-in-training – the children who play with, and inspire, Matchbox®. The campaign includes the Matchbox® Heroes Wanted™ Sweepstakes with a hero-sized $60,000 college scholarship.

The Matchbox® Heroes Wanted™ Sweepstakes calls on parents to celebrate the heroic attributes of their children by submitting a picture and caption of their hero-in-training dressed as their favorite real-life icon. Submissions will be showcased on the Matchbox® Heroes Wanted™ Facebook gallery and are automatically entered to win the grand prize – a $60,000 college scholarship. Parents with children between three and 10 years old can enter the contest now through May 13, 2013. Sixty prize pack giveaways will be awarded weekly consisting of a Matchbox® branded gift box, a personalized photo-frame thank you card and four heroic Matchbox® vehicles.

Below is a picture of one of my little heroes! Jacob loves pretending to be a construction worker. They are heroes because they build houses to keep people warm! He also loves playing “police officer” and wants to be one when he grows up so he can put the “bad guys” in jail.

To celebrate their 60th anniversary even more, Matchbox® is also releasing a collectible diecast line of 24 vehicles that go back to its roots to celebrate its 60th anniversary. Jacob and Lucas can’t wait to check out the new cars for themselves!
