Send your rockin’ Granny on a cruise! Grand, the official magazine for grandparents, is partnering with a children’s charity to hold a contest to find the happeningest grandma or grandpa for title of Grandparent of the Year. The winner gets a 7-day sabbatical in the Caribbean:
There are 79 million grandparents in the U.S.,
and grandparents are the primary caregivers for nearly 6 million
children. One of them will cruise the Caribbean for seven nights as
grandparent of the year.
KidsPeace, a charity that helps kids in crisis, is teaming with
GRAND, a magazine for active boomer grandparents, to conduct the
contest as a tie-in with National Grandparents Day (Sept. 9).
Visit grandcontest.com to
submit your name, the nominee’s name and a 100-or-less-word essay on
what makes the grandparent in your life so grand. Deadline is Sept. 5.
