St. Petersburg, FL (PressExposure) May 01, 2009 -- Breaking its annual tradition of honoring the sexiest âcelebrityâ grandparent, GRAND Magazine announced its plan to broaden this yearâs contest by soliciting nominations of ânon-celebrityâ Sexy GRANDdads.
Christine Crosby, Publisher of GRAND Magazine, explained: âFor the past three years, weâve had a lot of fun searching for the sexiest âcelebrityâ GRANDparents and have honored Harrison Ford, Naomi Judd and Tony Danza along with many other celebrity finalists including General Colin Powell, Goldie Hawn, Whoopi Goldberg, Pierce Brosnan, and others. But this year, GRAND had overwhelming feedback from our readers that they wanted to nominate that special (non-celebrity) GRANDdad in their life. That is how the change came about.â
What characteristics will the Sexiest GRANDdad possess? No, not abs of steel, the perfect smile or a full head of hair. GRAND Magazine and its readers have their own definition of âsexyâ; they feel the winning nominees should: live life to the fullest, exude confidence, both in themselves and others; share their wisdom to benefit others and maintain their perspectives on life by their appreciation of the âlittle things in lifeâ (like their grandkids), and never losing their warm sense of humor.
Anyone wanting to nominate that Sexy GRANDdad in their life can do so by visiting http://www.GRANDMagazine.com and clicking on âSexy GRANDdad Awardâ, where they will be asked to provide a brief description of why their nominee deserves the âSexy GRANDdad Awardâ, along with a digital photo of the nominee. Deadline for entries is midnight EST May 10, 2009. Ten finalists will be chosen by a top-secret panel of judges and one GRAND prize contestant will be awarded a week-long stay for two at the Beaches Resort in Jamaica
