Feature your father, win him a grill

The day for appreciating dad is fast approaching and the Nelson Star is asking for you to brag up the big man in your life.

The day for appreciating dad is fast approaching and the Nelson Star is asking for you to brag up the big man in your life.

Did he teach you to ride a bike and take care of your scraped knee? Does he read you bed time stories and comfort you during the night? Does he let you eat ice cream for breakfast? Or, maybe he’s always there to take a call, teach you how to change a tire or maybe the greatest at the grill.

In 50 words or less, tell us why your dad is the best and deserves to win the ultimate Father’s Day contest — a barbeque package of enviable proportions. It only takes a few words.

“Keep it short and sweet,” says publisher Karen Bennett. “Even kids can do this — with a little help from mom.”

The chosen dad will win a backyard barbeque blowout prize package that includes a portable Weber BBQ and a grocery gift certificate so dad can get all the fixings for the feast he makes best.

The barbeque is courtesy Kootenay Woodstoves and both Save On Foods and Kootenay Co-op are providing groceries.

The contest opened on Monday and runs until June 14 at 3:59 p.m. To enter, go to nelsonstar.com and click on contests. All ages are welcome to participate. Good luck!
