Give Away a Cottage, Build a Castle - Essay 101 - $101 Wins a New Home in Hawaii, Suitable for Living in or Use as a Vacation Rental

Creative solution to the poor real estate market - Hawaii couple built a custom home that hasn't sold yet, so they created "Essay 101" - a skills contest where the entrant writes a 101 word essay and pays an entry fee of $101. 3 prizes are offered: the custom-built, never lived in home is the Grand Prize, plus 2 cash prizes. The couple will also give $30,000 to their local schools on successful completion of the contest. It's a win-win for everyone.

Pahoa, HI, December 09, 2008 --( A couple in Hawaii have come up with a unique, pro-active way to “sell” their unique 1,300 square-foot, custom, never-before-lived-in home in a depressed real estate market - they are offering it as the grand prize in an essay contest.

The couple (as, LLC) is sponsoring Essay 101, a contest of skill where anyone (21 years old or older) can write a short essay (101 words or less) and, for a $101 entry fee, get a chance to win a brand new, never-lived-in, custom home on the Big Island of Hawaii. This home (affectionately called the “Sweetheart Cottage” due to the many design details) was built by John Williams, a local builder, with the goal of selling it immediately and using the proceeds to finish construction of his Castle, a future bed and breakfast ( near Pahoa, Hawaii . Due to the recession, real estate sales are down and thus, this creative and proactive vehicle was created.

Contest entries will be made online at, although postal mail entries will be accepted also. Local schools will benefit by donation from the sponsor.
