SMACNA Arizona has kicked-off the eighth Annual 100-degree contest in which the public is asked to guess the state’s first 100-degree day of 2012. The winner of the contest will receive a weekend getaway for two at the Four Seasons Resort in Scottsdale, Ariz. The winner also receives two 50-minute spa treatments and breakfast at the Crescent Moon restaurant. In addition, the 100th, 500th and 1,000th entrants in the contest will each receive $100 gift cards.

To enter the contest, visit the SMACNA Arizona website at www.smacna-az.org. Participants will be required to provide their contact information, along with the date and time that they think the first 100-degree reading will occur at Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport. Only one entry per day, per person will be accepted. No same-day entries will be accepted. In the event of a tie, a drawing will be held. The contest will end when the temperature reaches 100 degrees at the Phoenix airport as reported by the National Weather Service.

“This contest is fun for everyone – whether they are associated with SMACNA Arizona or not,” said Carol Goguen, executive director of the Sheet Metal and Air-Conditioning Contractors National Association of Arizona. “It is also designed to help those unfamiliar with the organization gain insight about how and why SMACNA Arizona contractors lead the heating, ventilating and air-conditioning industry.”
