Congrats to Nat Geo’s Contest Winner, Sandy!

Just wanted to give a quick shout out to fellow metropolite Sandy for winning a pair of Costa Del Mar sunglasses courtesy of National Geographic Channel. Sandy answered the question “Tell us why you love the National Geographic Channel” with this answer: “Nat Geo hands down offers the beautiful imagery on paper and TV. I really do think they invoke our curiosity and satisfy our craving to learn and see something new. The media today is filled with so much reality tv and crap that its nice to know there are still educational shows along with just appreciation for the world, culture, science, and art.” Well said! A big thanks to everyone who participated in this contest and stay tuned for more exciting giveaways in the future. Now…let’s all congratulate Sandy on winning that sporty pair of sunglasses!
