Write an essay, win a house in IdahoPosted on July 18

  • 0

An Idaho couple wants to move to Montana, and they're offering their house in Coeur d'Alene to the winner of an essay contest.

Dick and Wendy Webb decided after 17 years that it was time to move on. But instead of going the traditional route and selling their home, they decided to hold an essay contest and award the house to the winner.

The three-bedroom, two-bath house in Coeur d'Alene sits on 11 acres with a shop, a pond and landscaping.

The couple are asking applicants to write a 1,500 word essay by November, accompanied by a check for $150. Then a college English class will pick the winner and the Webbs promise to hand over the title.

The couple has a Web site and they've received essays from as far away as New York.
