NCP Sweepstakes: 2019 New Year’s Resolution Scavenger Hunt

Always a “crowd favorite,” our latest NCP sweepstakes, the New Year’s Scavenger Hunt contest, has just ended. Did you find the images for the New Year’s Resolutions?

OK, if you don’t know what I’m talking about, the goal of this sweepstakes was to go through my 2018 blog postings and look for the six New Year’s Resolution-related images (graphics) that I had “planted” within specific blogs.

We had a lot of entries! Each of them were reviewed, and those that had all six correct answers were entered into the NCP sweepstakes. We then randomly selected five winners.

Congratulations to the five New Year’s Scavenger Hunt winners who will each receive a $50 Amazon Gift Card claim code. (The winners have already been alerted via email.)

  • Amy F. / puddin …
  • Chantel R. / rodrig …
  • Cheryl A. / cheryl …
  • Julia W. / 1870ju …
  • Lesley S. / stee …

Note: For privacy, we only used the first few letters of their email addresses.

Here are the blog postings where the six images were located:

Commemorating MLK Day

Monday, January 21, is Martin Luther King Day. Our office, along with many other companies, banks, libraries, and the post office, will be closed.

So this is a good time to check out some facts about Martin Luther King, Jr., and the holiday that bears his name.

Facts about Martin Luther King, Jr.

  • King was the youngest person to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize when he won it at age 35. That record was broken in 2014 by a 17-year-old activist named Malala Yousafzai. 
  • At the Atlanta premier of the movie Gone with the Wind, Martin sang with his church choir.
  • He went to college at age 15 and became a minister at 19. He had his doctorate degree by age 25.
  • There are over 730 streets in the United States named after Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • The name on his original birth certificate is Michael King, which was a mistake. He was supposed to be named after his father who was named for Martin Luther, the leader of the Christian reformation movement.

Facts about Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, according to theodysseyonline.com:

  • MLK Day is only 1 of 3 national holidays in the U.S. honoring an individual person. George Washington, Christopher Columbus, and Martin Luther King, Jr. are the only individuals with national holidays honoring them. President’s Day, although commonly attributed with Lincoln’s birthday as well, was chosen because of Washington’s Birthday and was originally in honor of him alone.
  • MLK Day is celebrated on the third Monday of January because of King’s birthday. Martin Luther King, Jr. was born on January 15, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia. MLK Day is celebrated on the third Monday of each January because it is close to his birthday.
  • MLK Day is observed by groups in over 100 nations.

PSC Closed On Monday
As I mentioned at the beginning of this blog, our office and the Panel Support Center will be closed on Monday.
