“Win a Behind-the-Scenes Tour of Brookfield Zoo,” by S.M. O’Connor

Metro® by T-Mobile and the Chicago Zoological Society invite you to enter a contest to win a behind-the-scenes tour of Brookfield Zoo in west suburban Brookfield, Illinois by guessing how many LEGO® bricks are in a given sculpture in the traveling exhibit Brick Safari.  The exhibit opened at Brookfield Zoo on Saturday, May 11, 2019, as I wrote about previously, and will be open through Sunday, September 29, 2019.   In September, the sculpture in question is of the brown bear and cub.  Click here to fill out the form.  One must be eighteen or older to enter the contest.  Click here to read the Sweepstakes Rules.

Three winners – one each month on July, August, and September – receive a Metro by T-Mobile Brick Safari Prize Package valued at $537.80.  The package consists of (1) a behind-the-scenes tour of an animal exhibit at Brookfield Zoo for a party of four people ages ten-and-older; (2) a parking pass; (3) general admission passes for four people; and (4) passes to all open attractions for four people.

The first winner was chosen on Wednesday, July 31, 2019.  A second was chosen on Friday, August 30, 2019.  The third and last winner will be chosen on Monday, September 30, 2019.
