Thank you from Illinois Jif contest competitors as they move to top five          Send a link to a friend

Dear Editor:

Last month you published a letter from us concerning the Jif Most Creative Peanut Butter Sandwich Contest. We are writing to give your readers an update and to thank them for their votes.

Julie's sandwich, the Texas Roll 'Em Up, is now one of five finalists. She has made it to the final round! We truly appreciate each and every vote Julie's sandwich received. We're going to NYC!!!

All the sandwiches are very good. We have tough competition ahead of us. The other sandwiches going are Peanut Butter Rolls -- Sushi Style, Rocking Rainbow PB&J, Caramel Apple Turtle Treat and Peanutti Panini. I will let you know when we get back who is the grand prize winner of a $25,000 college scholarship. The four runners-up will each receive a $2,500 college scholarship. Final round in NYC is March 22.

[to top of second column in this letter]

Thank you a million times over for your votes; we truly appreciate each one! You who voted for Julie's sandwich helped us go on in this contest; thank you, thank you. And I do hope that you parents out there will consider entering this contest (look for it around August 2007 at www.jif.com).

This has been such a wonderful time and experience for me and Julie. The grand prize would be like the cherry on top of an already perfectly splendid mother-daughter time spent together.

Terry and Julie Dosher
