Win a Trip to Norway & Spend Time with Martha!

Martha Stewart has teamed up with Prizeo to support the Svalbard Global Seed Vault in Norway. Click here to enter to win a trip for two to Norway where you'll spend time with Martha touring the seed vault with the scientists behind its inception. The contest is open to all nationalities and the trip will take place in February. You'll also join Martha on a polar tour, a northern-lights viewing reception and a day of outdoor fun, dog-sledding and exploring a glacial cave! You only have to donate $10 to have your name entered into the contest!
The Svalbard Global Seed Vault, shown above, is located near Longyearbyen, Norway, the northernmost town on the planet, just 1,800 from the North Pole. Carved deep into the side of a mountain, its purpose is to preserve seeds of the world's plant life and crops for future generations, in case of a cataclysmic event.
The vault is built deep in the side of Plataberget mountain to protect it from any sort of doomsday scenario.

Below is Martha's letter to prospective contest entrants:

Ever wondered what precautions are being taken to safeguard our food supply for the future? In a town of 1,100 people on a remote Norwegian island just 1,800 miles from the North Pole lies the answer—the Svalbard Global Seed Vault. 
Carved deep into the side of a mountain close to Longyearbyen, the northernmost town on the planet, is a magnificent concrete structure housing seeds from nearly every country in the world. This February, I want to invite you to Norway for a once-in-a-lifetime expedition to the Seed Vault.
We'll will fly you and a friend to Oslo and cover your hotel and transportation, then we'll be off on the incredible expedition that includes a private tour of the vault, intimate discussions with leading food scientists and global policy makers, Michelin-rated dinners and a champagne reception to view the Northern Lights, intimate discussions with leading food scientists and global policy makers, and even a day of adventures including a polar bear tour, dog sledding, and exploring glacial cave - It’s a trip you'll never forget!
All it takes is a $10 donation to support The Crop Trust’s work in protecting the seeds that will guarantee our food supply. If you want to donate more, you’ll earn extra entries to win, plus get some cool exclusive outerwear and more. It’s my way of saying thank you for supporting this organization’s important conservation efforts.
Bundle up—it’s cold in Norway in February! Sees snart! (That’s Norwegian for “See you soon”!)
