You Could Win A $1.7M Home In Canada By Entering A $19 Letter-Writing Contest

Does this sound like your dream home? Here's how to enter!

Are you a great writer? If so, your creative writing skills and a $19 entry fee could help you win a $1.7 million home in Millarville, Alberta.

A woman in Canada started the “ Write a Letter, Win a House ” contest after not receiving any offers on her home, which she listed due to health issues.

Contestants simply need to write a letter explaining why moving into a lakefront dream home would change their life in 350 words or less. Contestants then need to mail or email it to the woman, along with a $19 entry fee.

The woman is accepting entries until April 5. After that, the woman and a panel of judges will decide whose creative letter deserves to win the home.

“Much like ‘sale by owner’, this contest has it’s challenges yet it is, in my opinion, a most incredible way to find a truly exceptional reason to bestow your treasured home (not just for $$$ but for sentimental reasons) upon someone that can skillfully and creatively convey to me and a panel of judges how this spectacular home would change or improve his/her and their family’s life,” the woman wrote on the contest Facebook page.
