ST. PAUL, Minn.

ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--When it comes to gift wrapping, do family and friends continually marvel at your imaginative handiwork? Are you able to turn even the oddest-shaped gift -- such as a telescope or swing set -- into an exquisite showpiece? Think you can "outwrap" the pros who work in department stores? If so, sharpen your scissors, unfurl your ribbon and pull out your handy tape dispenser. Now in its seventh year, the Scotch Brand Most Gifted Wrapper Contest, sponsored by 3M, will be held Friday, Dec. 5, 2003, in New York City's quintessential holiday locale: Rockefeller Center.

On this date, eight gift wrapping contestants -- four amateurs and four professionals -- will compete for the $10,000 Grand Prize and the title of "America's Most Gifted Wrapper" for 2003. And the person who nominates the grand prize winner will receive $1,000 as well!

To enter the Scotch Brand Most Gifted Wrapper Contest, describe in 100 words or less why you or someone you know has what it takes (i.e., lots of gift wrapping experience, creativity and expertise) to be crowned America's Most Gifted Wrapper. Be sure to include the following:

-- Your name, home address, city, state, ZIP code, daytime phone number, fax number and e-mail address (if available).

-- Nominee's name, home address, city, state, ZIP code, daytime phone number, fax number and e-mail address (if available).

-- Whether the nominee is entering as a professional or amateur. (Anyone who is currently or has previously earned income as a gift wrapper at a department store, specialty store, etc., is considered a professional.)
