Winners To Be Announced At the Lunar New Year Festival

NEW YORK,  -- New York's Chinese community hasn't popped firecrackers to wake up the dragon as per Chinese tradition on Lunar New Year, but the city's Chinatown is about to awaken with creative sprits. AT&T* and Better Chinatown Society announced today the launch of the AT&T Hong Bao (Red Envelope) Design Contest in celebration of Lunar New Year 2010.

"Red envelopes, usually with money inside, are traditionally given out to children during the Chinese New Year," said Tom DeVito, vice president and general manager for AT&T in New York and New Jersey. "This is an important part of Chinese culture and we're honored to be a part of this year's celebration as a Presenting Sponsor of the Lunar New Year Festival. We are kicking off the celebrations with our exciting Hong Bao Design Contest."

Beginning today, New York residents may visit AT&T's new Chinatown store located on 260 Canal Street, to pick up the official Hong Bao Design Kit, create their own red envelope design and enter to win a Technology Makeover. The contest runs until 5 p.m. on February 8, 2010. Participants are asked to drop off their submissions in person at the Canal Street AT&T store location. The store is located between Broadway and Lafayette in the heart of Chinatown. The store hours are Mon.-Fri. 9 a.m. – 9 p.m.; Sat. 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.; and Sun. 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.

A panel of judges, selected by Better Chinatown Society, will judge each entry based on three criteria – incorporation of AT&T products, creativity and presentation. The Grand Prize winner will receive a $750 Wireless Technology Makeover, which includes some of the latest AT&T wireless products up to $750. The first runner-up will receive a $400 Wireless Technology Makeover. The awards will be presented on Sunday, February 21, 2010 during the Lunar New Year Festival, at the stage in Columbus Park (67 Mulberry St.).  No purchase is necessary to enter or win.
