Kristi Yamaguchi and Smucker’s® Uncrustables® Encourage Families to Put Hopes and Dreams at the Top of Their To-Do List This School Year

Show Your Family’s Unstoppable Spirit for a Chance to Win a Gold Medal Experience in the Unstoppables Hopes and Dreams Family Photo Promotion

ORRVILLE, OH (September 3, 2013) /PRNewswire/ — Unstoppable families work hard to chase their dreams. But with busy schedules, finding time to talk about everyone’s dreams can be difficult. That’s why the makers of Uncrustables® sandwiches – a portable, crustless pb&j sandwich – have partnered with unstoppable mom and Olympic gold medalist Kristi Yamaguchi to encourage families to focus on their goals for the upcoming year. Parents are invited to enter the Smucker’s® Uncrustables Unstoppables Hopes and Dreams Family Photo Promotion, which will award one grand prize winner a trip to the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid, NY with a chance to meet Kristi Yamaguchi and see where top athletes have accomplished their dream of becoming a member of Team USA!

Kristi Yamaguchi understands the importance of having an open dialogue with children about chasing their dreams. “I teach my kids that no dream is out of reach,” says Yamaguchi. “I think it’s important for families to share their goals for the year with each other and to support one another as they work to achieve them together.”

Now through September 26, parents can visit and “like” the Uncrustables Facebook page, complete the promotion entry form and upload a photo of their family showcasing their hopes and dreams along with a caption of 100 characters or less explaining their family’s hopes and dreams to be entered for a chance to win the grand prize. One grand prize winner will be selected via a random drawing from all eligible entries. Also, 20 weekly prize winners will be randomly selected for each week of the Promotion Period from all eligible entrants. Visit www.uncrustables.com for Official Rules and complete details.

Uncrustables sandwiches are available in four popular flavors, including grape and strawberry, as well as additional varieties like whole wheat and reduced sugar. The Smucker’s Uncrustables Unstoppable Hopes and Dreams Family Photo Promotion closes on September 26, 2013 and is open to legal residents of the 50 United States and D.C., 18 years and older.
