Roll Up the Map


2020 Winter Recess Contest


This year we're giving away prizes: Every. Single. Day. No, that's not a proper sentence, but it's okay, because our daily raffles are good enough to earn some bonus points with teachers!


Here's how to play:

1. You'll receive one ticket upon registration and packet pick-up.


2. Gain more tickets to win by making purchases at any participating business between Friday, Feb. 14th and Sunday, Feb. 23rd. Bring your receipts to whichever Ithaca Visitor Center is most convienient for you:


Downtown Visitor Center

110 N. Tioga St. Ithaca, NY


Ithaca Visitor Center

904 East Shore Dr. Ithaca, NY


3. Wait for a phone call and come pick up your prize!


We're giving away everything from wine, cider, food, and more. Be sure to check out the official rules at the bottom of this page! Thank you, teachers! Ithaca loves you!

Official Contest Rules:


We are going to be celebrating TEACHERS every day! 


Each day during Ithaca Loves Teachers week, we will raffle off items from businesses participating in the Winter Recess Teacher Festival. Raffles will occur at BOTH of our Visitor Centers: Downtown Ithaca Visitor Center located at 110 N. Tioga St., The Commons, Ithaca and East Shore Drive Visitor Center, 904 East Shore Drive, Ithaca.


Drawings will take place at 12pm every day. Every teacher will receive ONE raffle ticket upon picking up their registration materials at either location. In addition, for every purchase made at a participating Winter Recess business from February 14-23, bring your receipts and your VIT pass to our Downtown Visitor Center (110 N. Tioga St., The Commons, Ithaca) or East Shore Drive Visitor Center (904 East Shore Drive) to receive additional tickets to be entered in to the drawing (one per receipt shown).


Tickets roll over from each drawing to the next. Open to VITs only. Must bring receipts to Downtown Visitor Center or East Shore drive locations. Purchases MUST have been made between February 14-23, 2020. One entry ticket per participating business receipt. No limit. Need not be present to win.
