OFFER GOLD WATCH MOTOR PRIZE

The New York Times
December 17, 1922


Three gold watches are being offered by the National Automobile Chamber of Commerce for the best answers to the following questions:

In what way are the national automobile shows of value to the public?

In what way are the national automobile shows of value to my company?

In what way are the national automobile shows of value to me?

The person whose answer is adjudged best of all will receive a $200 watch, the contestants whose answers are considered second and third best will each receive a $150 watch.

The conditions governing the competition are:

Any competitor may answer one or all questions separately or may combine the answers in one article, but no one will be awarded two prizes.  Articles must not exceed 1,500 words if all three questions are answered; they must not exceed 1,000 words of two questions are answered or 500 words if only one question is answered.

The construction or phraseology of the answers will not be a factor in the awards—reasons will be the dominant points upon which the awards will be based.

No one connected with the offices of the National Automobile Chamber of Commerce or the show management may compete.

Answers must be received not later than midnight Wednesday, Jan. 3, 1923.  Answers must be sent to S. A. Miles manager of the show, 366 Madison Avenue, and will be judged by a committee appointed by the President of the Chamber.

The announcement of the awards states that every individual interested in the motor car, either as an actual or prospective motorist, or as a manufacturer, dealer or salesman, must have ideas that may be turned into a constructive article in answering the questions

The New York national show, the first  big motor event of the year, will open Saturday night, Jan, 6., in the Grand Central Palace and will continue through to Jan 13.  On Jan. 27 the Chicago national show will open.
