Can a person enter more than once and do you have to live in Oregon. I am in North Idaho. Thanks, and if eligible, can hardly wait to enter your contest.

Hi Judie,

I hope you got my other reply on Facebook too! You can absolutely enter from outside of Oregon. Though if you're a finalist, your travel to Tillamook isn't covered by the contest.

Good luck!
