Orbitz founded the Vacation Party to fight for every American’s right to vacation.
Now, we need a candidate to lead us to victory and/or a shrimp buffet.
Make a campaign ad to persuade Orbitz Vacation Party voters why you should be their ofﬁcial candidate – and get $25,000 in free travel. Are you the world’s greatest vacationer? Have you been dreaming up the best vacation ever? Do you look smokin’ hot in a speedo? Most importantly, how will you inspire Americans everywhere to go forth and take the vacations they deserve?
1. Participants make a 60-second video persuading voters why they should lead our party, and upload it by 8/27.
2. Starting 9/6, party members can view finalists and vote for their favorite.
3. The winning candidate will show Americans how it’s done – by campaigning across the nation, then enjoying $25,000 in free travel.
