#ScareMoneyOut Halloween Contest

For Halloween this year, the Stampede is encouraging you to make money in politics a little less scary by submitting your very own "money in politics" costume ideas. And of course, we're giving away treats! Participants can receive a coupon for free ice cream and the grand prize winner will receive 12 pints of Ben & Jerry's ice cream.
2 ways you can play:

1. Send us your ideas for a "money in politics" themed Halloween costume.
Ideas might be related to an organization working to #GetMoneyOut (or rather, #ScareMoneyOut) of politics such as You can use the messages on our stamps to inspire you. You can even suggest pet costumes or ways to carve a pumpkin that reflects "money in politics." Be creative and find interesting associations with the theme. We're hoping this is a good way to get people talking about this issue.
Ben Cohen will pick his top 5 favorite ideas and those 5 individuals will be awarded with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s.
2. Send us a picture of your "money in politics" themed Halloween costume or decorations!
You've got tons of options.
Carve a clever corrupt jack-o-lantern or dress up your pet feline as a wealthy steel baron aristo-cat! Make a costume inspired by the movement to get money out of politics. Just note: It has to be a real costume--earn that ice cream, folks.
The owner of the best photo will get 12 pints of Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream AND a free stamp! *Brownie points to people who have a Stamp Stampede stamp in their submitted photos.* If you submit a costume photo, you'll automatically get a free pint coupon!
