What Does Your Child Aspire to Be? Tell Gerber Life in the Bring Dreams to Life Video Contest! {$25 Visa Gift Card Giveaway}

Gerber Life Insurance logo
If you were to ask my kids what they want to be when they grow up, Big Sister E would answer immediately and decisively that she is going to be a teacher. She came to that conclusion a few years ago and has never wavered from it.

Little Sister B, on the other hand, would most likely pause, break into a grin, and begin a list that goes something like, First I'm going to be a princess and when I'm done being a princess, I'll be a rock star. Then, when I'm done being a rock star, then I'll be an astronaut, you know? To go into space? And then I'll be a teacher, too...

Most recently she has added being a doctor to her collection of future professions and, as with every other career she has ever mentioned, I've told her that I'll support her no matter what she decides (even if I do happen to be secretly rooting for doctor over rock star).

When it comes to those aspirations that all children have, Gerber Life Insurance has found a way to not only celebrate the dreams, but to help make them a reality: the Gerber Life Bring Dreams to Life Video Contest and its $10,000 Gerber Life College Plan grand prize.

Bring Dreams to Life contest

Running now through April 1, 2013, the Gerber Life Bring Dreams to Life Video Contest gives parents the perfect opportunity to show off their child's ambitions... while also earning them the chance to win a $10,000 Gerber Life College Plan!

Ready to enter? The steps are simple:
  • Step 1 - Take a video of your child (who must be 8 years or younger) telling what he or she dreams of being when they grow up.  If your child is too young or can't talk, feel free to add your own thoughts and be creative.
  • Step 2 - Log onto the Gerber Life Facebook page and submit your video to the Bring Dreams to Life Contest.
  • Step 3 - Share your child's video with friends and family on Facebook and urge them to vote. Videos with 100 or more votes will automatically qualify for the final round.
  • Step 4 - A panel of judges will select the grand prize winner and 10 runners-up from among the finalists. The grand prize winner will be awarded an amazing $10,000 Gerber Life College Plan and the 10 runners-up will receive a $100 gift card.
All that's left to do is find out what endeavors your child has for their future career. Firefighter? Musician? Police officer? Librarian? Lawyer? Pteranodon and cross country skier, perhaps?

childhood dreams

No matter what path your child yearns to follow in life, now is the perfect time to get it on video and help make their dreams come true! Find out more details and rules for the Gerber Life Bring Dreams to Life Video Contest on Facebook today.

Plus, thanks to the generosity of Gerber Life, one person will be able to make a smaller scale dream come true as well, because...

One lucky person will win (1) $25 Visa Gift Card and (1) Gerber Life Calculator and Pen!

$25 Visa gift card


A big thank you to Gerber Life for providing a gift card for me as well as a gift card, calculator and pen for one lucky giveaway winner. The opinions shared are my own and honest and if you really need to see more, click here to see how I roll.
