Contest: Go Orange to Go to Amsterdam
Lately, everyone seems to have World Cup fever. You can hardly walk by a bar without seeing a WC happy hour promo or browse the Web without coming across at least one headline. And now, with the finals upon us, that fever has spread to the Netherlands Board of Tourism and Conventions, and rightfully so: the Dutch National Team—nicknamed Oranje (orange)—are celebrating their third ever placement in the World Cup finals. (They'll be playing against Spain on Sunday.)
So what better way to celebrate this feat than by starting a contest? The tourism board is offering two round-trip tickets to Amsterdam from any international airport in the world to one grand prize winner. What do you have to do? Show your love for Oranje...by getting decked out in orange—the country's historic, national color!
Take a photo of how you plan on showing off your "orange spirit" for the final game. Once you've snapped the perfect picture, just upload it to the Holland Facebook page and you're done. (And it couldn't hurt to maybe cross your fingers, light a candle, and pray for a win—for both you and the Dutch!)
The contest is currently underway, but you'll have until Tuesday at 12 p.m. (EST) to submit. So get moving/painting!
