John Deere Canada Announces Green Carpet VIP Experience Contest

Company to award 3 prize packages to attend Canadian Country Music Association Awards

GRIMSBY, Ontario, Aug. 26, 2013 /CNW/ - In conjunction with its sponsorship of the John Deere Green Carpet at the 2013 Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) Awards, John Deere Canada is holding a special Green Carpet VIP Experience contest.

According to Sarah McIntosh, shows and events coordinator for John Deere Canada, John Deere is awarding three grand prize packages which include two tickets to experience the John Deere Green Carpet in a V.I.P section and to attend the CCMA Awards show on September 8, in Edmonton, Alberta.

"Because of the overwhelming success of the first John Deere Green Carpet at last year's CCMA Awards, we decided to create a special contest to give more fans an opportunity to experience the excitement of attending the CCMA Awards," explains McIntosh. "This is a great way for six fans to get an up-close look at their favorite Canadian country music performers."

To enter the contest, people can stop by the John Deere booth during the Jiffy Lube FanFest at the Shaw Conference Centre on Saturday, September 7, and fill out an entry form. The contest is open from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and the three winners will be drawn from the entries received at 3:00 p.m..

"We encourage everyone interested in entering the Green Carpet VIP Experience contest to stop by the John Deere booth during the Jiffy Lube FanFest at the Shaw Conference Centre," says McIntosh.
