Here's how you can nominate someone (or yourself) for the giveaways.


The month of May is packed with celebrations that range from Mother’s Day to National Nurses Day, Teacher Appreciation Week, and National Military Appreciation Month.

That’s why Sandals Resorts has decided to give away a free trip to teachers, nurses, military members, and mothers who go above and beyond every day through the month of May.

With the #SandalsMaycation giveaway 31 people will win a six-night and seven-day vacation for two adults at any Sandals or Beaches Resort of their choice.

Sandals Resorts will randomly select one winner every day in May to receive the reward, which can be used within a two-year period. Winners will be notified each Friday of May.

The prize will include a romantic vacation escape for two, with the luxury resorts found in tropical settings ranging from Saint Lucia and Jamaica to the Bahamas and Barbados.

The trips include all-inclusive packages that incorporate 5-star gourmet dining at up to 16 different restaurants per resort, unlimited premium spirits at up to 11 bars per resort, unlimited water and land activities, non-stop airport transfers, and even complimentary green fees for those looking to golf. Airfare is not included as part of the giveaway.

Grand prize winners will receive a stay for two at one of the Butler Elite and Love Nest Suites, which come with amenities like 24-hour room service and butlers to cater to any need, while there will also be 27 giveaways of entry level deluxe category suites.

Those interested are invited to nominate someone they know (or themselves) from April 15 through 11:59 p.m. ET on May 30. To make a nomination, head to the giveaway’s website and upload a photo of the person you’re nominating along with an explanation in 250 characters of why they should be given the trip.

Those nominated will need to be a legal U.S. resident and be at least eighteen years old to apply. Participants will need to nominate someone they are personally acquainted with and must have the nominee’s permission to submit a nomination on their behalf. Each participant can only submit one nomination.

You’ll also need to submit the full name, phone number, and email address for the person you’re nominating.

Sandals Resorts isn’t the only company giving away free trips in May. CheapCaribbean will also be giving away free flights to 50 teachers and their guest of honor for Teacher Appreciation Week this May.
