    Win 10.000 bags of potato chips on potato chips day!
    Next month, people everywhere will be celebrating National Potato Chip Day.

    This year the Washington State Potato Commission (WSPC) is looking to make it a day that one lucky winner and 10,000 of their closest friends will never forget.

    In honor of National Potato Chip Day, the WSPC is giving away 10,001 bags of potato chips to one of their Facebook fans.

    The drawing will occur Friday March 14th, 2014, on National Potato Chip Day.

    It will only take people two simple steps to win. All someone needs to do is “like” the Washington State Potato Commission Facebook page and “share” the contest announcement post with their friends. When someone does both, they will be automatically entered into a random drawing for over 10,000 bags of potato chips.

    “Potato chips are America’s favorite snack and use only three ingredients: fresh potatoes from the earth cooked in healthy plant oils and lightly seasoned,” said WSPC Executive Director Chris Voigt. “We can’t think of a better way to help people celebrate National Potato Chip Day than to make sure they aren’t celebrating alone.”

    So what is someone supposed to do with all of those potato chips?

    A recent report by The Economist states that the average person has 120 friends on Facebook. So the WSPC will be offering ideas over the course of the next month on their Facebook page as to what people can do with the remaining 9,880 bags of potato chips.

    Some of options include:

    • Donate the rest to a food bank; snacks are often the first thing people give up when times are tight
    • Give the remaining bags to a local high school sports concession stand for resale
    • Sell that potato chip that looks like President Nixon on eBay and retire from the proceeds
    • Share a few cases at a veteran’s hospital
    • Create a blog and share with everyone what you are doing with the potato chips
    • Eat one bag a day for 27 years
    • Bring a smile to strangers by standing on a street corner and giving them away to people passing by
    “We are encouraging everyone to get their friends to participate as well, because if they win you win,” said Voigt.
