One winner gets a pair of Chuck Taylor All-Star sneakers, a Converse gift certificate for another pairs of Chucks, and a Downtown Records Prize Pack (new artist CDs, posters, etc).
The connection between Converse and Downtown is related to Converse/Journeys’s “Get out of the Garage” contest. Basically, Converse and Journeys are accepting original song submissions. The winner gets a free trip to NYC for four days/three nights of free studio time so they can fully realize (create, mix) their song. Said final winner will be chosen by Downtown Records, home of Gnarls Barkley, Justice, Santogold, etc. The general graphic design of the thing:

As far as the ‘Gum Drop giveaway, though, you don’t need to write a song. Just enter to win. Remember, one person gets the Chucks (the winner gets to choose his/her preferred size and color), a Converse gift certificate, and a Downtown Records Prize Pack.
CONTEST ENDS 08/27/08 AT 12PM EST.
