Gift boxThis year’s giveaway is better than ever and features many of the items I have reviewed or spoken about here on MusicEdMagic over the last twelve months. There are also a few items that have been provided to me as duplicates from previous year’s giveaways as well.  I have learned from past mistakes in previous years of this giveaway, with entrants winning items that they really did not want to win, so this year I have changed the giveaway format a bit.  Read on to see the prize list and the official rules.

The Rules:

To enter to win any of the prizes listed below simply go to the linked page on MusicEdMagic that talks about the item you want to win and leave a comment about why you want to win it or how you would use it either as an educational tool or for personal use.  Make sure to sign in to MusicEdMagic or use a valid email address so that at the conclusion of the contest I can contact you directly to set up shipping information.  Please note that this contest is open only to US and Canadian residents.

The winner of each item will be chosen at random from all of the entries for that individual item.  In the unlikely event that a prize receives no entries that prize will be put into a second chance drawing from all of the entrants for all of the prizes.   Only one prize will be given per user/street address but you can enter as many of the drawings as you would like to.

Winners will have three business days to respond via email to a message that they have won.  If they do not respond within three days a new name will be drawn.  The method for drawing the names for each prize will be to assign each comment a number and a random winning number will be generated using Prizes will be drawn for in the order shown below.

2010 Prize List:



Yamaha PockeTrak C24 Digital Audio Recorder
Leave a comment on how you would use this device in your classroom or for personal reasons.  The winner for this prize will be selected both from new entrants that comment on the Yamaha PockeTrak C24 and also from those that already entered the drawing for the PockeTrak W24 that I gave away on Thanksgiving.  In other words, leave a comment in both places and get two entries for this prize!s
