Palisades Announces ‘What Drives Your Holiday Smile?’ Photo Contest Winners

December 22, 2009

BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., Dec. 22 /PRNewswire/ — It’s been one of the warmest holiday seasons on record in New Jersey, thanks to the many Garden State residents who shared their fun holiday moments with the Palisades “What Drives Your Holiday Smile?” online photo contest. Now, New Jersey’s Nice Car Insurance Company is proud to announce and congratulate the winners in the Holiday Fun, Kid Photo, and Pet Photo categories.

Over the last month, New Jersey residents of all ages submitted pictures to the Palisades Drive With a Smile web site, showcasing what makes their holidays fun and festive. Entries ranged from family pets dressed up in their holiday best to kids with Santa to families decorating their homes.

Visitors came to the site to view the online gallery, share in the holiday spirit and cast “smile” votes for their favorite pictures in each category. The votes have been counted, and the winners are:

  • Holiday Fun Category: Kathy Platvoet of Aberdeen for “Jake in the Box”
  • Kid Photos Category: Kelly Hunt of Hammonton for “Santa???”
  • Pet Photos Category: Dawn Rodrigues of Jamesburg for “Santa’s Little Terrier”

Each of these entrants will receive a $1,000 gift card for holiday shopping and have their photos showcased on the Drive With a Smile web site. Additionally, Palisades will soon announce one Best in Show winner, based on total “smile” votes, who will receive the use of a new car for two years.

“Palisades is so happy to bring some holiday cheer to our winners and everyone in the Garden State,” said Ed Fernandez, president and CEO of Palisades. “All of the entries in the ‘What Drives Your Holiday Smile?’ photo contest celebrated the best moments of this wonderful season. We’re glad to have been able to bring so many smiles to New Jersey.”

The “What Drives Your Holiday Smile?” photo contest officially launched on November 18 and is the latest initiative of the Palisades Drive With a Smile campaign, designed to drive more smiles in the Garden State.
