It seems like everyone—and every company—is feeling the power of social media these days. In celebration of Hawaii’s 50 years of statehood, Marriott Resorts Hawaii is hopping on the e-bandwagon with a two-part sweepstakes geared toward Twitter and Facebook users, offering 25 all-expense paid trips for two to Kauai, Oahu, Maui or the Big Island and a trip for one lucky tweeter and 11 guests.

To enter for a chance to win one of the 25 trips, all you have to do is submit your Twitter handle, Facebook connection, or email. (Easy, right?) Drawings will be held every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday until Oct. 21, 2009.

The trip for 12 is a bit more involved; contestants need to create a short video about why they love Hawaii and upload it to YouTube by Dec. 20, 2009.

Winners will be announced on Twitter (@MarriottHawaii) and on Marriott Resort Hawaii's Facebook page. For full details and to enter the sweepstakes, visit
