It’s as easy as that! Once you’re done, you will be automatically entered into the contest.

You’re probably wondering what you can win, right? Well, it wouldn’t be right to celebrate #NationalFriendshipDay without your BFF so we’ve got you covered! Our grand prize winner will be treated to an afternoon of fun activities with their best friend* AND a Goldfish Swim School prize package, complete with prizes for two!

The contest kicks off August 4 at 9:00am EST and lasts through August 7 at 11:59pm EST (#NationalFriendshipDay is August 6!). Winner will be selected at random and will be announced on our Instagram account on August 8. The winning contestant will be tagged on Instagram and contacted via direct message with instructions on how to pick up your prize (so keep an eye on that little mailbox icon in the upper right hand corner for more info).

We are so excited to be hosting this contest to celebrate friendship! We can’t wait to see all of the cute photos you post with all of your besties. Happy #NationalFriendshipDay – we’re thrilled to be friends with you!
