A picture may be worth a thousand words but in the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s latest contest a picture and 50 words could be worth $10,000.

From Nov. 1-Dec. 31, authorized shoppers can enter the “Homeward Bound” contest by submitting a picture or video of a military welcome home experience, along with a 50-word or less description, for a shot at the $10,000 Exchange gift card grand prize.

“We’ve all been moved by video footage and pictures of military members returning to their families,” said the Exchange’s Senior Enlisted Adviser Chief Master Sgt. Tony Pearson. “We are excited to see the stirring submissions competing to land the $10,000 prize.”

In addition to the grand prize, the second-place winner will receive a $5,000 gift card and third place will take home a $2,000 gift card.

The “Homeward Bound” contest is open to all authorized Exchange shoppers 18 years or older. Complete rules and entry instructions can be found at www.shopmyexchange.com/homewardbound.
