The KtS Contest: Never Forget

Update: This contest has ended, with no entrants and no winner.

Martin Guigui's 9/11 opens in theatres today, nearly sixteen years after the tragic events it dramatizes. The film, starring Charlie Sheen, Whoopi Goldberg, Luis Guzman, and Gina Gershon, centers on a group of strangers trapped in a World Trade Center elevator during the September 11th, 2001 attacks.

It was a day that changed the world forever, in ways that we immediately (and rightly) think of as negative. But 9/11 also brought out the best in people across the world--through charity, activism, art, and a greater awareness of global affairs.

In the spirit of remembering not only that darkest of days but also the lessons we've learned from it, Kicking the Seat has teamed with Tether Group to bring you the "Never Forget" Contest.

The Prize: Kicking the Seat is giving away one (1) 9/11 Movie Prize Pack containing:

  •  9/11 movie poster hand-signed by star Charlie Sheen
  • “Hope” Pendant with necklace
  • Guide to Talking To Your Children About 9/11, courtesy of Tuesday’s Children

To Enter: Click here to visit the Kicking the Seat Facebook fan page. Leave a comment, telling us one thing you learned from 9/11 that caused you to make a positive impact on the world.

Deadline: Post your entry by 11:59pm on Thursday, September 21.

One winner will be chosen at random to receive the 9/11 Movie Prize Pack.

You can also check out the 9/11 Movie trailer and Blog App below for more information about the film, including cast interviews.
