Have you ever won anything before? Such as a competition of sorts, either irl or right here on PC. Be sure to describe what you won and what you received, if anything!

The best thing I won was some drawing thing at one of my mom's work parties. It came with a N64 and some games. It was awesome! We hooked up the 64 in our bedroom so we could play games on it all we wanted instead of having to ask my stepdad for permission to play downstairs. 8)

I don't think I've outright won a competition before. One time I placed third in some essay contest about the branches of government and got to leave town for the day, though, and that was fun.

...I won a Master Ball in the lottery in Black 2 the other day too, that was sweet!! That totally counts.

I won a juicer at a knife demonstration at the store a month or so ago. The dude selling the knives picked a random person to get a free juicer and I happened to be that person. Then I disappointed him by not buying the knife set.

I won a 32 inch Toshiba LCD TV(one of those old glorious big ones), A Sony Stereo System, a 6 foot Spongebob from a crane machine, 10 or so USB flash drives, 3 MP3s, 5 science fair awards from my elementary days, and an upper thigh rub when I was 14 from a girl. That last one is a high note for my 14 year old self, a low point for the 19 year old one though.

While I was in the boyscouts years ago, we had an annual event where we would race wooden carts we made. I came in first and got a trophy :D Also when I ran track in high school I won a few races and got medals.

I usually don't bother with stuff like that. Contests around here aren't exactly judged fairly. I:

RUB IT IN MY FACE WHY DON'T YOU >:(

ERR. I've won a few things but nothing major. Just random dancing contests and once one for writing a book. My greatest achievent to date however was being awarded "Best Music Taste" on another forum. I still cry tears of joy when I think of it, I assure you.

As a non-serious example, I once won a national online sweepstakes that got me a Naruto headband via the mail! It was pretty cool, since I never thought I'd win an online sweepstakes like that in which thousands of other people had also entered. The chances were so low!

I won a camcorder in a raffle around Christmas one year. Its funny because my sister won this really pretty and expensive dress that same raffle. The luck was just flowing, I guess.

On PC, I've won a few of the past Get-Together events (including this past year's 'Impersonate Lerroux' event), the 'Create a Protagonist' event that was held in advance of knowing anything about B2/W2, and a reviewing contest for a game.

Outside of PC, I won a raffle put on by my school's alumni association and got a computer bag, travel clock, fancy pen, and some other goodies. That computer bag is still in regular service today.

I've entered a few drawings of mine into country art shows, and won quite a few things there (as in, I am awarded first prize, for example, and I get 2-3 dollars).

And I won a raffle once.... I'm not sure if that is counted.

I remember winning a CD player from Sky when I had the second highest score in Bust a Move. Wasn't too impressive, but my old CD player had broke, so it was a good thing I got it then.

Some contest thing when I was in 3rd grade that I hardly remember, I got to pick an ice cream with whatever I wanted and some books, I made it on a newspaper but nobody reads those xD

I've won a few things here on PC, such as the PPC and a few of the Get-Together things. However, off PC I can only recall off the top of my head winning one thing. Back in Third Grade where was a writing contest going on and the whole grade had to enter. Though I don't remember if the teacher told us that it was a contest or I wasn't pay attention because I didn't know it was a contest until I won. That said, I wrote my 'If I was a Hockey Puck' story and it won me an autographed Hockey Puck that I still have to this day.

I grabbed number 1 at a Starcraft competition a long time ago, if that still counts.

Let's see.

Back when I was a kid, I got a huge trophy for ballet. In the second grade, I won first place in some singing competition in our school, and got another trophy. In the third grade, I got second place in a spelling competition, and received a silver medal. In the fourth grade, I participated in a local painting competition, and got a silver trophy for winning second place. In the fifth grade, I won another painting contest, and this time, I got first place.

This year, nah, nothing.

I won something (I forget the name of it) at the teen arts festival for my value self-portrait junior year of high school. It was an award of sort, and only about four other people won it. I won some awards for band and I won some awards for essays I wrote in middle school. I think I won two awards when I did karate, but it's really rather foggy and I can't really remember. Outside of that, I can't think of anything else.

lol pc awards

I've placed pretty highly in bowling tournaments, but that's about the full extent of anything that I've won before.

I don't think I've won anything ever lol. Wow that's depressing to think about, I've never really considered it before.

There's a lady I work with who is always winning movie tickets and stuff like that in radio competitions. She's a pro at it.
