It may not be a brand new car, but hey, you end up having to pay the taxes on those anyway, so this contest that OWN is running to meet the woman herself, Oprah Winfrey, may just be better than any giveaway she ever handed out on her talk show.
Oprah Winfrey Network announced today the launch of an online sweepstakes at Oprah.com in support of the new series Oprah’s Lifeclass, formerly “OWN Your Life (the oprah class),” and its online companion course. Starting today, viewers can enter the sweepstakes for a chance to meet Oprah Winfrey at the O You! event in Atlanta, Georgia and reserve their spot for the online companion class at www.oprah.com/oprahslifeclass.
While it’s a bummer that Ms. O isn’t scheduled to come back to L.A. to meet fans anytime soon, heading across the country will really make this an experience. Getting to see her in-person and hitting up a sure-to-be fabulous party hosted by her magazine has to be a vacation in and of itself. But fifteen winners will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Atlanta to participate in O You!, a conference in which they will be the first students in Winfrey’s class and join her on stage.
Oprah’s Lifeclass will feature Winfrey reaching back through her talk show’s twenty-five year history to teach the lessons that matter most to her, including the guidelines for fulfilling life’s potential, breaking through barriers, understanding purpose, letting go of anger, how to use joy to fuel life, and becoming all you were meant to be. On-screen Winfrey will share her most personal revelations and what she thinks now about those iconic show moments and guests. There will also be an online companion to the show that premieres on October 10th at 8pm.
