Contest: Show 'Why I'm Lucky,' Win Groceries, Patch Goodies

Share a picture to illustrate why you're a lucky guy or gal (as long as St. Patrick's Day is on our minds); we'll give five random winners a special package of Patch merchandise and a $50 Dierbergs gift card.

St. Patrick's Day is on our minds, and we've got the perfect way to see if the luck of the Irish is with you: We're giving away five prize packages including $50 Dierbergs gift cards and a package of Patch merchandise. All you have to do is show us "Why I'm Lucky."

Enter our "Why I'm Lucky" contest for a chance to win. Here's how:

  • Upload a photo that shows off why you're a lucky guy or gal by clicking on the "Upload Photos and Videos" button to the left. Remember to give it a caption so we know why it shows off your luck. Maybe it's a son or daughter who's made you proud for years. Maybe it's an award from your colleagues, a winning lottery ticket, or a picture of the fallen tree that just missed your car. You decide. (Pictures need to conform to Patch's terms of use policy.)
  • Just show us tastefully in pictures what makes you lucky and tell us in the caption why it's a lucky charm for you.

Once you've entered, we'll enter you into a drawing to be one of five winners of our Patch prize package, which includes a $50 Dierbergs gift card, a Patch ball cap, T-shirt, tote bag and note pad.

OK, now for the rules:

  • Open to legal residents of the 50 United States, the District of Columbia who are 18 and older.
  • To enter, upload a photo of something you love to this article and tell us in the caption why its the object of your affection. Keep it clean.
  • All entries must be received by noon on March 19, 2012, St. Louis time.
  • You may enter once.
  • One winner will be selected in a random drawing.
  • Five (5) winners will receive one prize package of a $50 Dierbergs gift card and Patch-branded merchandise, including a ball cap; a T-shirt; a tote bag; and a note pad. Approximate Retail Value: $70 each.

Click on the "upload photos and videos" button this page to send us your photo and remember to describe what it represents. But be sure to come back and to add your photo to the gallery on this contest page.

I am Lucky because I have been blessed with 2 beautiful children! (It wouldn't let me comment with my photo of the girl and boy in blue)

Im lucky because I was told my triplets were all going to die ( it was too soon for them ) but God was watching over us. I brought two home and one went to heaven after 2 weeks of fighting very hard. These children have changed my life forever - one being totally blind and the other with lung issues it teaches me that no matter what someone else is worse off. My situation which i thought was the worst ever wasnt - it makes me the luckiest mom ever
