Show your love of country

Wave your Canadian flag and win with The Morning Star

The Morning Star wants to see your flag.

North Okanagan readers are invited to use the cover of last Wednesday’s newspaper and show their pride around town.

Take a photo with the Canada Day flag and you, a pet, a loved one, on a mountain top, on the lake, at Funtastic or anywhere you are and you could win a $250 JC Bradley gift card.

“Show us your patriotism this Canada Day and win with the flag,” said Ian Jensen, Morning Star publisher.

Contest runs until July 10 at www.vernonmorningstar.com (click on contests in the top right hand corner and choose the Canada Day contest).

Time is also running out for another contest cooking up at the newspaper.

Readers can win a new barbecue with the BBQ Cookbook contest.

“In celebration of summer, we’re fired up to share some of those mouth-watering recipes, whether it’s an appy, side dish, entree or sweet treat,” said Jensen.

Submit your favourite barbecue recipe for The Morning Star’s inaugural cookbook online by Thursday under the contest tab.

The Morning Star has also joined forces with its parent company, Black Press, to offer the Take Your Best Shot contest.

“The photography contest has been a huge hit across B.C. with some stunning images, sweet shots and amazing talent,” said Jensen.

So far, more than 800 entries have been received from contestants competing for more than $2,000 in prizes and the chance to be named the Next Generation Amateur Photographer of the Year.
