To participate in the contest, simply follow the instruction on the given day's post. This could require you, the participant, to Like or Comment on the post, or perhaps complete another simple task in order to be considered for the winning prize draw. Each of the 12 days will have a winner. The winner will be announced at the bottom of the day's specific post, signifying the end of that day's contest.
