Share Your Maui Vacation Story For a Chance To WIN!
Since everyone who returns home from "The Valley Isle" has a Maui vacation story or two to share, why not share your Maui travel stories for a chance to be the winner of our latest contest!
What can you win? Your choice of a FIFTY DOLLAR U.S. gift certificate to Amazon.com OR a FIFTY DOLLAR CDN gift certificate to Amazon.ca! Whether you want books, toys, household items or whatever, Amazon has it all!
Haven't been to Maui yet? Since I'm assuming you're here because you're planning a Maui vacation, then why not bookmark this page, and then come back here to submit your story after you've returned from your trip?
Do you live on Maui? Why not share your story from your latest "staycation?"
It's always great fun to re-live our holiday experiences by sharing them with others, and even MORE fun if sharing means you can win a $50 gift certificate to Amazon, right?
Here are a few of our favourite entries from past contests that might inspire you!
Sandy of Vancouver, WA, (pictured to the left) won one of our contests with her story, "The Gazebo Restaurant in Napili, Maui: Breakfast Worth the Wait!" She included some great pictures along with a great review!
We've had a lot of great entries in our contests - here are a few of our favourites:
Our Trip from Sea to the House of the Rising Sun, by Gary of Oklahoma City, OK

Haleakala at Sunset, by Caroline of Ladysmith, B.C.
Tips for Creating a Winning Caliber Entry
1) Include a picture... or 2.. or 3... or more! A good picture tells a thousand words, and will definitely help to bring your story, trip report or review to life... and maybe even to first place!
2) Keep it real! Please don't feel like you have to embellish your story or make it over the top. Just tell your story as you would to a good friend who might be interested in visiting Maui. We're looking for stories that will be of interest to other visitors on this site. You could share your full trip report, a review of your favourite Maui restaurant, resort or activity... You could tell a story about an interesting or fun experience you had...
3) Add details! I suggest a minimum of 250 words of quality information to increase your chances of winning! Try to include the details that would interest YOU if you were researching a Maui vacation right now. Especially include the kinds of details that only someone in the know who's "been there and done that" would know.
I'll be accepting contest submissions until 11:59 p.m. (central standard time) on April 30, 2013. The contest winner will be notified on or before May 7, 2013.
