Paul: These are entry forms and materials for our new store promotions and giveaways. Sonia: What prizes can people win? Paul: There are different kinds, because we’re running several promotions at once. We have scratch-off cards to win instant prizes, including t-shirts. Sonia: Those t-shirts are really nice. I’d like one of those. Paul: We also have a collect-and-win game. People collect codes printed on our products. When they’ve collected a certain number, they win gift certificates to spend in our store. Sonia: Wow, that’s great. I’d like a gift certificate. Paul: We also have a sweepstake. Enter to win one of three grand prizes: a TV, a Hawaiian vacation, and a brand new car! Sonia: Wow, I definitely want one of those. Paul: Do you know what you can do to win? Sonia: No, what? Paul: Quit your job. The rules say that employees and their families are not eligible. Sonia: I don’t suppose I can find a way around that. Paul: Not unless you’re considering divorcing your husband or disowning your children. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
