A 5-acre farm in Corning, owned by Tim and Maggie Lott is being sold in a non-traditional way! The two have spent the past 18 years building their family and this farm. They have decided that it is time for them to move and start a new adventure!
Instead of selling the property like any one else would, they have made the choice to give it away as the grand prize of an essay contest! Because this may seem odd, or a scam- the family is partnering with real estate attorneys to make sure the process is legal. There will be three judges who decide the winners.
Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 contestants.
First place winner will receive the lot AND $10,000.
Second place will receive $1,000
