Birks Bracelet and Bobsleigh Contest

Comments 3 by Rebecca Bollwitt

When I received a press release from Birks about their bobsleigh display a few weeks ago I thought there would be no better way to celebrate bobsleigh events at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games than to work with this in some way. We came up with a contest for readers and I timed it to coincide with my history piece about bobsleigh in St Moritz, Switzerland that was published this morning.

Birks is the official jewelery supplier for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games, and OMEGA is the official Timekeeper for the Winter Olympics. Both have organized the Olympic-themed display featuring a sleek red fibreglass bobsleigh setup in the middle of the Birks flagship store on Granville and Hastings.

Visit this display and answer a skill-testing question on and you could win a Birks Collection for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, Nature 8-Charm Bracelet, in Sterling Silver valued at $350.

With an exceptional collection of fine jewellery and gifts bearing the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games marks, Birks invites you to take part in the sparkle and show your support in a truly unique way with its exclusive collection of sterling silver, silver-plated and 18kt gold jewelery and gifts. This 19cm (7.5 inches) sterling silver charm bracelet features 8 Nature-inspired charms. []

To qualify to win the bracelet, visit the Birks store on Granville and Hastings to find out the answer to the question in the form below:

Stop by on your lunch break, in the morning, or after work. The store itself is an amazing piece of Vancouver history and I’m sure the display looks great. Just make sure to stop by here after your visit to Birks and enter the contest using the form above: Is it a two or four man bobsleigh on display?

Entries must be received by 12:00pm January 14th, 2010 in order to qualify. Only entries that contain correct answers will be valid and put into the draw. The winner will be drawn at 2:00pm January 14th, 2010 and will be notified by email.

Disclosure for this post: I was not paid to write this post but I requested an item valued $350 to give away to a reader in a contest.

Update January 14th, 2010 I have just drawn the winner randomly using the ContestMachine website. Since she had the correct answer (4-person bobsleigh) Lindsay M is the winner of the Birks bracelet. Thanks to everyone for entering!
