So...if you have been in stores recently you may have noticed yet another Skylanders and Frito-Lay promotion...I actually spotted the bags tonight at my local grocery store...
This promo doesn't entail you trying to win a Skylander, but the prize is much greater...There is artwork for three potential Skylanders. Fans can submit a name and a story behind the name for evaluation. Judges from Activision and Frito-Lay will select a finalist for each character. At this point, fans get back in the mix by voting online for the character name they like best...
The person who came up with the winning name/story will be awarded a $100,000 scholarship That is a very big deal!
If academics aren't inspiration enough, everyone can take pride in knowing that if their named Skylander wins the character will appear in promotional settings and even in the game. I would assume as a playable character, but that is not etched in stone based on what I have read thus far...That would be insanely cool though.
So, who can you name? Check it out:
If you are interested in participating in the contest, head this direction:
If the contest isn't up your alley, you at least get a look at some potential Skylanders AND you can score some tasty Frito-Lays Multipacks with sweet savings on Skylanders! Each bag will have discounts, so be on the look out!
You can find more info and official rules on the website linked above! Good luck!!
