In June, “American Way,” American Airlines’ in-flight magazine, launched its third Annual Road Warrior search.
Throughout June and July, readers are invited to enter the contest by logging onto http://www.americanwaymag.com/roadwarrior. After completing a few contact and survey-style questions, Road Warriors are asked to answer three essay questions — plus an optional bonus question. Answer these questions with just the right amount of style and substance, and you could be the next American Way Road Warrior.
“There’s a real art to traveling well,” said American Way editor, Sherri Burns. “In the past two Road Warrior contests, we’ve reviewed over 15,000 entries. Frequent business travelers relay a perspective that’s truly inspiring. It’s certainly not all glitz and glamour, but it’s purposeful. And these travel industry VIPs are poetic and profound in the way they describe their insights, experiences and tips.
This year, we’re looking for them to move beyond the intricacies of travel and show us their creative and humorous sides.”
So, what do you get if you win? This year’s Grand Prize winner will not only be profiled in “American Way” magazine, but will fly away with 1 million AAdvantage miles and 2 million Hilton HHonors bonus points.
Now you’re talking our language.
The contest’s essay questions include: “Write a jingle or slogan that best expresses your approach to life as a Road Warrior,” and “Which 10 to 12 songs would be on your Road Warrior soundtrack?”
Two million Hilton HHonors bonus points can equate to 200 room nights, and a million American Airlines AAdvantage miles can translate to 40 free domestic coach class roundtrips.
