CHICAGO, April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Valspar believes that color has the strength to brighten spirits and enliven a room, and because no one is more deserving of the power in color than our moms, Valspar is launching a Mother's Day Facebook contest called Connect Mom to the Power in Color. The contest offers Valspar Facebook fans a chance to win free Valspar paint for their moms. The contest begins on Tuesday, April 26, at 12 noon EDT and runs until Tuesday, May 3, at 11:59 p.m. EDT.
Facebook members may participate in the contest by simply clicking "like" on the Valspar Facebook page at Facebook.com/ValsparPaint and telling us in 300 words or less why their mom deserves to experience the transformative power in color from Valspar. Winners will receive a certificate to give to their mothers, who may redeem it for two free gallons of paint to makeover their favorite room.
"There is no better present than a gift that can transform and bring happiness, and a Valspar color makeover can do just that," says Valspar color expert, Sue Kim. "The Connect Mom to the Power in Color contest is a great way to invite color into your home this spring and freshen up any room. Plus, painting is a fun project to do together with your mom!"
Valspar Paint will select 10 lucky winners, each of whom will be connected to a Valspar Customer Service representative for personal assistance with ordering two free gallons of Valspar's best-quality paint from a selection of thousands of colors, which will be shipped directly to their mom's home.
