Welcome to the fourth contest of our Arthritis Awareness Month celebration! This one's our biggest - the prize is a $200 CVS giftcertificate!
The short version of the rules is this: the contest is open to US residents over the age of 18. One entry per person, the contest is open until 11:59 PM EST Tuesday May 31, 2011.
To enter, answer the following question in 200 words or less:
What have you learned through Arthritis Awareness Month that surprised you?
If your mind just went blank like a flashback to Grade 11 chemistry or you're new to MyRACentral, check out some of our Arthritis Awareness Month content for ideas. Posts such as our interviews with The Arthritis Foundation, Seamus Mullen from The Next Iron Chef and Karen Ager could be helpful. So could posts on Lupus, Psoriatic Arthritis or the more than 100 types of arthritis. You can also check out the posts about RA and Fibromyalgia, sleep during a flare and FMLA.
If that sounded too much like homework, we apologize. Winging it is allowed!
Your answer can also be personal - if you've had an experience during the past month that surprised you or taught you something about arthritis or living with srthritis, tell us about that.
Please leave your answer in a comment on this post. As in our other contests, please make sure that your entry is left in a new comment, not a reply to another comment. Wordcount will be strictly enforced by a cuddly teddybear!
Winner will be announced on Monday, June 13, 2011.
