We will post the contest question on the designated contest entry page on the Iowa Lottery's website, and put a hyperlink to it on each of the social media platforms involved. At the end of the contest entry period, we'll select five winners from all of the eligible answers submitted. Winners will be announced here and also on our social media pages once they are ready.

We'll notify the winners by email. If you are one of the winners, we'll need to verify your information in order for you to claim your prize pack! Winners will have until 4 p.m. on Wednesday, July 31, to verify their information with us. We'll also select alternates in case any of the winners are ineligible.
