All you have to do to win is correctly guess the 2008 Cherry Blossom Festival Queen, the First Princess and two Princesses.

Second prize is two inter-island round trip tickets to a Neighbor Island. Third prize is one inter-island round trip ticket to a Neighbor Island.

Best of all . . . you can send in one entry per day! The contest runs from Feb. 19 – March 19. I know it’s early, but it’s never to late to plan ahead, after all, there is a free trip on the line.
