So, I thought this was pretty seriously cool.

In honor of Alzheimer’s Awareness Month and Thanksgiving, Dakim Inc and AlzheimersWeekly.com have joined forces in a rather awesome contest, named “Give Thanks for Loved Ones.”

The prize? 5 lucky seniors (age 65 or older) will win a complete Dakim Brain System, as well as a year’s worth of updates.  Dakim’s system is pretty much the Rolls Royce of brain training, and each prize has a value of $2,500.

The system itself includes a computerized, touchscreen unit about the size of a laptop, loaded with multimedia brain exercises and games.  It’s remarkably simple to use, and designed specifically for seniors – in fact, it’s the most widely used product found in senior communities across the US.

Here’s the part I really like…

Instead of randomly rewarding those who game the contest odds with a gazillion entries, this contest rewards those who are sincere and giving.

You see, you don’t enter for yourself, but on behalf of a loved one whose brain health you’d like to give a boost too.   To enter, just write a 500 word (or less) essay on why your nominee deserves the gift of Dakim Brain Fitness.   There’s plenty of room for creativity, too – some possible directions for essays include:

  • How Dakim Brain Fitness might help your aging spouse, parent, grandparent, or friend.
  • How it might help you be a better caregiver
  • Why you’re concerned about their brain health, what made you start looking into brain fitness for them.
  • Why your nominee deserves to have the sharpest brain they can, for as long as they can!

Make your entry sincere, honest and compelling – make it an argument for adopting a brain fitness routine to fight dementia.   Along with the chance to win a Dakim Brain Fitness system, select entries will be posted on Alzheimer’sWeekly.com, to help raise awareness of the importance of cognitive fitness, so there’s the potential for benefit to society even if you don’t win.

You can find the complete rules, entry forms, and even a forum where you can type in your entry online here: Give Thanks For Loved Ones” Brain Fitness Contest Rules You can also learn more about the Dakim Brain Fitness System at Dakim.com, or read more about the contest here, on Alzheimer’sWeekly.com

So what are you waiting around here for? Start writing!  The deadline may not be until November 5th, but you can sharpen your own brain right now by working on your essay 😉
