Are you playing the Aurora Open for Business Contest? If no, why not? It’s easy. It’s fun. It’s a chance to win. And best of all, it’s a great way to get to know your local Aurora business community and support it during construction.

“Construction is hard on everyone, but especially businesses right in the middle of it,” says Shoreline Mayor Keith McGlashan. “Shoreline is committed to doing what we can to support them through this. We are pleased to be able to partner with the Shoreline Chamber of Commerce to present this contest encouraging the community to visit and support Aurora businesses. In addition to the ad campaign and contest, we’re offering free workshops and one-on-one assistance for local businesses. In these tough economic times, I encourage businesses to take advantage of these resources.”

Look for the contest on a special four-page insert in the March Shoreline Journal, now on newsstands. The insert also includes a map and business directory for the second mile of Aurora, N 165th to N 185th Streets.

This is how it works: Eligible contestants 21 or older identify as many of the nine Aurora businesses represented by abstract photos as possible and then send guesses to the City or Chamber by April 9. Those with the most correct answers win. In the case of a tie, a random drawing will determine who wins the prizes: three winners will get a new car for a weekend.

Extra inserts are available at City Hall, 17500 Midvale Avenue N, and the Shoreline Chamber of Commerce office at 18560 First Avenue NE and for download at the City webpage Full rules and instructions as well as the map and business directory are also available on the City’s website.
