Millennium Winner Gets Year Off

Winner of BBC contest to get entire year off work Eve

With one of the most unique prizes ever imagined, BBC is set to start a contest in which the winner receives an entire year off from work. The contest is called "2000 To 1" and contestants will play for the chance to win double their salary and have a 12-month break as part of a major charity appeal.

Match of the Day host Gary Lineker and star of the BBC's Small People, Scott Chisholm, are launching the show. The contest is part of the Children's Promise Millennium Final Hour Charity Appeal.

There is a catch in order to enter. People in Great Britain are asked to donate one hour's salary to help youngsters and will then be eligible to enter.

BBC1 is looking for 2,000 people who want to wake up on January 1 knowing they have the year ahead free. In each of five heats, 400 people will be whittled down to just one.

The five lucky finalists will then take part in a quiz on 2000 Today, BBC's 27-hour Millennium broadcast starting on New Year's Eve. During the show, the winner will be chosen.

The unemployed are also free to take part, as long as they can prove they have made a donation and will be eligible to win double the national average wage, around �40,000 ($64,000 US).

DATE: 9/30/99
