The Countdown Begins: Who Will Win the $6,000 Saskatchewan Vacation?

The $6,000 Saskatchewan Vacation Contest is coming to its exciting conclusion. From over 9,000 entries, the list of potential winners has been reduced to just 45. Every month since February 2008, five semi-finalists have been randomly drawn to receive a Saskatchewan gift package valued at approximately $80, and are now entered into the final draw for the grand prize – a Saskatchewan Vacation Package of their choice worth up to $6,000!

What will the lucky winner choose? Here are some possibilities:

Go on the fishing adventure of a lifetime in Saskatchewan. Golf as many Saskatchewan courses as you want. Relax at a spa or lakeside resort. Tour Saskatchewan’s towns and cities and discover fabulous attractions like the RCMP Heritage Centre in Regina and Wanuskewin Heritage Park in Saskatoon. 

Golfing in Saskatchewan

Take in great events like the SaskTel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival or the Craven Country Jamboree, Canada’s largest country music festival.
