It’s not everyday that a local family wins an awesome contest, but for Steinbach resident Katharina Neufeld, a dream vacation has become a reality thanks to the Pizza Hut’s Don’t Open Me challenge.

This Fall, the Pizza Hut’s Don’t Open Me challenge gave visitors a prize winning envelope with a simple set of instructions:

Don’t Open until September.

Every envelope from the challenge was a winner, but there was a catch. It was only a winner if it stayed sealed until September when it was returned to a dine-in Pizza Hut restaurant and unlocked by one of the managers.

1,000,000 was in prizes was available including vouchers for travel, entertainment and even gaming systems.

So tell me, did you know about Pizza Hut’s Don’t Open Me challenge?

I think I would've been able to keep it closed but it would've been hard.
