I've been sharing details with you here about the "Keep Your Ticket Handy" project we're working on this summer with the Iowa Tourism Office. The Prize Patrol is part of that initiative.
Our Prize Patrol team will visit local festivals, fairs and other big events during May and June in Iowa and they'll have prizes and special offers for anyone who has a Powerball ticket on them! You never know when someone may come up and ask if you’ve got a Powerball ticket. If you do and you can show it to them, you'll get a prize or a coupon with a special offer on the spot! Prize Patrol members are pretty easy to spot because they'll usually be driving our "Powerbug," which you see in the pic here.
This past weekend, our Prize Patrol had fun surprising people at Kites Over Grinnell. And this coming weekend, our team will be making folks happy at the Muscatine Boat Show and at the races at the Iowa Speedway.
So, remember there could be something in it for you if you do what our slogan says: Keep Your Powerball Ticket Handy!
We'll be adding our Prize Patrol stops to the list of lottery events we keep on our Web site, so be sure to check the list to see if our team will be coming to your area!
