Borders Launches Sweepstakes Promo, Space Camp

  • June 24, 2009
Borders, Astronomy magazine and the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex are launching a "Train like an astronaut" sweepstakes. As part of the promotion, Ann Arbor, Mich.-based Borders will host an in-store Space Camp event nationwide today.

Through Saturday, customers can visit or and enter for a chance to win a four-day trip to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex located just east of Orlando, Fla. Three grand-prize winners will each be awarded a trip, which includes roundtrip airfare for the winner and three guests, three nights accommodation in Cocoa Beach, car rental for four days -- and the opportunity to participate in an immersive Family Astronaut Training Experience at Kennedy Space Center.

One first prize winner will receive a Meade 6" ETX-LS telescope and 10 second prize winners will each receive a one-year subscription to Astronomy and 10 third prize winners will each get an astronomy calendar provided by Astronomy.

Saturday's Space Camps will feature a space-age schedule of astronaut and spacewalk games and activities, solar system crafts and trivia and other "out-of-this-world" activities.--Tanya Irwin
