Free Super Bowl ad time contest

Posted: Updated:
NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY.COM) -

Just a few seconds of ad time during the Super Bowl can cost millions, a cost most small businesses could never dream of affording. But now there may be a chance to get a few seconds of fame during the big game for free.

The contest is called Small Business Big Game. More than 10,000 are vying for what could be a once in a lifetime chance, including many from the tristate area such as Nikki Cordi. Her Seaside Heights preschool and daycare Ultimate Scholar II was completely flooded out by Superstorm Sandy. Now her community is dealing will the devastation of last week's boardwalk fire. She said winning a Super Bowl ad would mean more than a boost to her business. She thinks it would be an opportunity to thank everyone that helped rebuild after the storm.

"Everyone that came together after the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, it just felt like I could visualize all of us on the screen," she said.

The 20 businesses that get the most votes online will advance to the next round. Software company Intuit is behind the contest. In addition to picking up the tab for the ad time the company will pay for the spot's production.

"At Intuit, we are passionate about small business. That is what our business is all about: making small businesses successful," said Heather McLellan, director of Intuit Small Business. "And so we came together and said what better way to shine a light on the impact that small businesses make on our economy and on our world than putting them on the world stage?"

If you still want to enter for a chance on that world stage you have until midnight Sunday night.

    Brooklyn's final pitch to hold the 2016 Democratic national convention was centered on New York City's robust mass transit system -- and a pledge to learn "from the mistakes" from the last time the city hosted a presidential convention. The Republicans gathered in New York in 2004 to re-nominate President George W. Bush, choosing to meet in deep-blue Manhattan less than three years after the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
