MSI offers another chance for one person to live at MSI for 30 days and win $10,000!
CHICAGO, /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ –Month at the Museum is back … and it could be looking for you!
After the groundbreaking, original Month at the Museum experiment in fall 2010, the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago (MSI) is once again searching nationwide for a new roommate to live at the largest science center in the Western Hemisphere for 30 days this fall.
From Oct. 19 to Nov. 17, 2011, the winner will have full rein of the 14-acre Museum—experiencing everything MSI has to offer while soaking up science and interacting with Museum guests and fans online via a blog and social media. And, at the end of it all, he or she will take home a $10,000 prize and bragging rights for a lifetime.
Applications, due on July 22, 2011, include submittal of a 60-second video describing how the entrant would spend his or her month at MSI as well as a 500-word essay about why he or she is the best person for the job. Entrants must be 18 years or older and eligible to receive compensation in the United States. To apply, visit www.monthatthemuseum.org.
“It was so much fun having our first Month at the Museum winner, Kate, at MSI last year, and since then, we have been inundated with requests to welcome another roommate,” said Rob Gallas, vice president and chief marketing officer for MSI. “We encourage all adventuresome people with a thirst for knowledge and new experiences to apply for this amazing opportunity.”
While the basic premise of the experiment will stay the same, there will be some additional experiences and surprises in store for the 2011 roommate. MSI is also asking fans to share their ideas for the month-long stay on Facebook and Twitter: What would they like to see the winner do while living at the Museum? “Like” MSI on facebook.com/msichicago and post suggestions.
