Local Business Launches 'Ugliest Driveway' Contest

GOFFSTOWN - For every cracked, beat-up, worn-out driveway, there’s a story. Perhaps it’s a tale of neglect, winter storms, glacial movement, a meteor crash or an unfortunate incident involving a monster tractor pull looking for a place to turn around. With its “America’s Ugliest Driveway” Contest, Jack Child, founder of Goffstown's Black Dawg Sealcoat®, is in search of America’s Ugliest Driveway and is willing to put $500 in the pocket of its owner to ease the sting of their misfortune.

Beginning April 15th (a date chosen for its own “eyesoreness"), homeowners from all 50 states may submit their photo or video along with a caption or story making their case to win the prize. Besides just plain being ugly, points will be given for creativity and cleverness in the form of captions (e.g., here’s my driveway after  aliens landed on it) and brief stories (e.g., cracks that resemble celebrities or world leaders). Funny videos will receive extra consideration. The winner, to be selected on June 15, 2009, will receive $500, courtesy of Black Dawg Franchise Group, parent company of Black Dawg Sealcoat®. 

One driveway from each state will be chosen as that state’s Ugliest Driveway and the owner will be sent a jug of real New Hampshire Maple syrup, courtesy of Parker’s Maple Barn, Mason, New Hampshire. From that not so elite group of uglies, one Grand Prize winner will be selected and hailed as owner of “America’s Ugliest Driveway” and collect $500. 

Homeowners wishing to submit their “ugly driveway” entry should visit www.AmericasUgliestDriveway.com. Entries are limited to one per household. By submitting their entry, contest participants agree to allow Black Dawg Franchise Group LLC to use their names, likenesses and any items submitted for marketing purposes and publication on the web.  Contest is void where prohibited by law.
