Borders helps sponsor spacey sweepstakes



Borders has teamed up with Astronomy magazine and Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex to celebrate the 40th anniversary of man's first steps on the Moon.

Beginning June 23 through July 27, customers can visit or and enter for a chance to win a four-day trip to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex located just east of Orlando, Fla. Three lucky Grand Prize winners will each be awarded a trip, which includes roundtrip airfare for the winner and three guests, three nights accommodation in Cocoa Beach, car rental for four days -- and the unique opportunity to participate in an immersive Family Astronaut Training Experience (ATX) at Kennedy Space Center. During the action-packed two-day Family ATX, participants will get to perform a mock space shuttle mission, ride flight simulators, have lunch with an astronaut and receive a guided tour of Kennedy Space Center, including an up-close view of the space shuttle launch pads and the Apollo/Saturn V Center -- the home of a 363-foot long Saturn V Moon rocket.


In addition, there will be one First Prize winner, who will receive a Meade 6"ETX-LS telescope. Further, ten Second Prize winners will each receive a one-year subscription to Astronomy magazine and ten Third Prize winners will each get an astronomy calendar provided by Astronomy magazine.

Borders stores nationwide will host a Space Camp event July 25 for kids of all ages. The event will feature a space-age schedule of cool astronaut and spacewalk games and activities, solar system crafts and trivia and other out-of-this-world activities.
