2 Dove Contests ends Nov 21st

Hi Everyone
Dove has two contests running right now so I just wanted to let you all know about them.
The first contest is the Dove Hair Care Brush With Greatness Sing4All video contest. Groups consisting of 3-10 members must submit a video singing the complete lyrics to the song "My Favorite Things" from the classic movie The Sound of Music. If you win, you and your group members will perform your rendition of the song at Radio city Music Hall in NYC. You will also receive a video conference singing lesson and a Dove Hair Care gift pack.
Vote for your favorite group at
You have until Nov 21st to enter.
If you submit an entry, please let me know so that I can support your video!
Contest #2
Honestly I don't know what you have to do for the second contest, I just know that Dove is working with 20th century Fox and The Sound of Music to encourage women to continue doing their favorite things.
The winner will get a trip to Austria where the movie The Sound of Music was filmed.
* I still love that
Wishing you all the best if you enter...
