Congratulations to This Year’s Graduating Class From the Prize Patrol


I have not been asked to deliver a commencement address to a high school or college graduating class; but if I was given that honor I would say “CONGRATULATIONS!  Your dedication and intelligence has earned you a diploma!  Now, carry on – applying those qualities to your chosen pursuit.  God bless you, and good luck!”

Come to think of it, that short address contains words I have spoken hundreds of times – to prize winners and would-be winners of the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes.

In the seconds after our Prize Patrol presents roses, balloons and a Big Check worth thousands or millions of dollars to a lucky PCH Sweepstakes winner, I say “Congratulations!  You were smart and persistent, and — look! — it paid off!”

When I talk to the hundreds of people I meet who WANT to win, I urge them to use their intelligence and stick-to-it-iveness and “Enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes!”  Then I add, “Don’t be a dummy and fail to enter – or you will lose for sure.  And don’t be discouraged if you don’t win on the first try.  Be persistent!  Enter every day – as our online rules allow.”

Finally, I add “Good luck!” – because I know that luck plays a part.  But, again, if you don’t enter the PCH sweepstakes you cannot possibly win.

Now – to all of you in this year’s graduating class: CONGRATULATIONS!  I know that the employment outlook is discouraging — even for some of you who finished near the top of your graduating class.  I wish we could wave a magic wand and paint a rosy picture of opportunity.  That is not within our power; but I CAN urge you to “Be smart, be persistent, be optimistic, and enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes at once. You could be a winner!”  A simple click on this link to pch.com will get you started.

Good luck … and hopeful Congratulations!

  3. Hi Pch !
    I wish to Congraculate my daughter who was a Graduate student from high school this year and accepted to DSU, but could not find the scholarship or the financial Aid to continue her ambitions of becoming a Nurse in the field on Oncology- cancer nurse. We all pray everyday for her to get a miracle of getting financial Aid or scholarship, and I hope You-PCH is her answer to win this Scholarship through me the parent since she does not play sweepstakes. I have being playing sweepstakes for over 4 vears all in vain. but still hope that One day God will hear our prayers.Thanks in advance and let God bless everybody who is struggling like Me!

    CONGRDTULAYIONS TO THE WINNER OF THIS CONTEST I WOULD BE TELLING A STORY IF I SAIED I WASN’T HOPING THAT IT WOULD BE ME BUT IF I DON’T WIN IT’S OK BECAUSE GOD SUPPLIES MY EVERY NEED BUT A LITTLE EXTRA NEVER HURT ANYONE.I STILL LOOKING FARWARD TO MEATING YOU YOUR FRIEND.

  5. Dear Mr. Dave Sayer, It sure would be nice if I was the 1 person that you will be looking for on August 31ST, 2011. You see I wrote an application out for a PCA JOB for Oveido Florida. If I end up getting that job I would have to have all of my stuff shipped down their & it would cost me alot of money. So then I would be able to use the winnings, If I win, & I would also be able to buy a nice house. It is very hard here in Orange County NY to find a Job. I was told that they pay more money down there then they do here. It would be nice if you came on to FaceBook to be my friend, would you except the offer if I gave it to you. Thanks, I hope to here from you soon. THANKYOU, FROM YOUR BIG FAN & FRIEND marilynhadey28

    I have entered the PCH sweepsteaks many times and have come close…I think. I sent in many processing fees but did not win. My husband will no longer allow me to send in these fees when we are having difficulty paying our bills. It would be nice if I could pay the fee after I win.
