TravelOregon is sponsoring an essay contest in which the winner gets an all-expenses-paid "cuisinternship" in one of seven professions, including brewmaster, chef, rancher, winemaker, and distiller. Sweet! Contest entries (you have to make a video) due Sept 18th. Details here. To launch Martini & Rossi’s new Sparkling Rosé, they're giving away a 3-night spa weekend in New York City, so this is kind of the opposite contest. I'm not sure when the contest ends, but all you need to do is sign up here.
