Dan Meylor from Mitchell, S.D., Grand Prize Winner; 90 Packers Prizes Awarded
More than 24,000 fans recently participated in the Green Bay Packers' 90th Birthday Trivia Challenge, an online contest that featured daily trivia questions on various aspects of the team's rich history.
A total of 268 participants answered all 19 questions correctly and Dan Meylor, from Mitchell, S.D., was randomly selected from that group as the grand prize winner. As the winner, Meylor won two club seats to the Packers-Bengals game at Lambeau Field, Sept. 20, and will lead the Packers alumni on the field to be introduced at halftime during alumni weekend ceremonies.
"We salute Dan and his knowledge of Packers history and look forward to having him at Lambeau Field for the Packers-Bengals game," said Craig Benzel, Packers director of marketing. "We had a lot of fun with the contest as a way to celebrate the team's 90th birthday and appreciate the participation of all the fans."
In addition to the grand prize, 90 other prizes were randomly awarded to participants. Other prizes included autographed footballs and mini-helmets, club seats to various preseason games, Acme Packers gear, Pro Shop gift cards and other Packers merchandise. A full list of winners is available online at Packers.com.
The online contest, which ran from July 20 through Aug. 7, featured an e-mailed link to the day's trivia question with multiple choice answers from which to choose. A correct answer increased the odds of being randomly selected to win a prize. Participants needed only to register for a chance to win a prize. However, with each correctly answered question, their odds to win were increased. All participants had to be at least 13 years old. The contest was open only to participants in the United States.
