Tu Son de Verano - Sweepstakes Rules

Summertime is filled with days on the beach, nights with your friends and special moments with your family. We want to hear the soundtrack to your summer! Share your favorite summertime jams with us for a chance to win a grand prize trip to the Alma Awards! We’ll also be giving away Huawei Ascend Q Muve Music phones — and the first 50 entrants will automatically receive a $5 gift card!


Submit your top five songs of the summer and select one of four categories: “Las de boda/quinceañera” (wedding/quince songs), “Las de Picnic” (songs you listen to while grilling outside), “Las del Baile” (songs you’ve been dancing to) or “Canciones para escuchar en el coche” (those songs that are perfect for long drives).


Then, ask your friends & family to vote for your playlist – the lists with the most votes will win!


One grand prize winner, with the most total votes, will win a prize package that includes a trip for you and three friends to the taping of the Alma Awards on September 16, 2012 in Los Angeles, including airfare and accommodations. The entrant with the most votes in each category will win a Huawei Ascend Q Muve Music phone and three months of free wireless service.
