15,630 Thai listeners responded to the June 2003 Thai Service 15th Anniversary Celebration of becoming a medium wave feed service (the service began its short-wave broadcasts in 1942).
800 lucky winners received gifts such as VOA alarm clocks, key chains, pens, softside briefcases, polo shirts, and VOA caps.
Technology rules! The service received 3916 emails, which equals 25% of the total entries. And 11% of those came directly to the Thai Service web page.
The email drawing was held on July 3rd in Washington, the ‘snail mail’ drawing was held in Bangkok on July 11.
Check out these photos from the email drawing that took place in Washington, D.C.
Staff worked together to print e-mails from listeners, and then randomly selected entries from a huge pile of the printed e-mails.
We hope our future contests are just as exciting!!
It was hard work, but everyone had a good time.
THANK YOU LOYAL LISTENERS, WE LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!
