State Quarter Give-A-Way

 AS IN ILLINOIS

Yes, to celebrate I day on A to Z Blogging, I am giving away a quarter from my home state of Illinois. 

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!

In order to be fair, I will also be giving away the state quarters of Indiana, Iowa, and Idaho.


BUT THAT'S NOT ALL!!

I will also give away all the state quarters that have the letter i in their name.  Such as Maine, South Carolina, and California. 

AND AS IF THAT'S NOT ENOUGH. . . .

To give the winner an idea of how majestic the letter I is when it appears in the name of states a little perspective is required.  I will also give away quarters from every state not fortunate to carry the letter I in their name such as New York, North Dakota and Delaware.

THAT'S 50 QUARTERS!

3 years ago I gave away 50 state quarters here and it turned out to be one of my most popular endeavors.  I have been wanting to give away some more for awhile and was waiting for the right opportunity.  I am actually going to be giving away


NOT ONE BUT TWO

sets of state quarters.  That's right two sets.


Set one will be given away in the traditional way.  At the end of the contest, I will draw a name from all the entries and choose the quarter winner.

5 entries will be given for every comment on this post.  One entry will be given for each comment on my A through H posts and my upcoming J through R posts. If you blog, tweet or post on FB about this contest just leave a comment for an extra entry.

 And A week from tomorrow on April 18th (Q day) I will announce a winner from all the entries.

In an effort to bring my followers up to 100 and beyond.  I am having a follower only give away for the second set of state quarters.  If you are already a follower of this site you automatically get 5 entries to the second drawing.  If you sign up now you will get 10 entries and if you are the lucky 100th follower you will get 100 entries and 10  state quarters (If you don't snag the set of 50). When I get 100 followers all previous followers will get an additional 5 entries.  All followers after 100 will get 20 entries.  On April 18th or when I reach 100 followers, whichever comes later, I will do a second drawing for the remaining set,

Excited?  You know I am.

Please pass on the info on this incredible contest.

  2. Oh good, my home state (Ohio) qualifies! I have a full set framed and on display and another set would look great in the living room. So how many entries do I have so far??
