For up to date Hawaii contest listings, see our Hawaii Sweepstakes Blog category.
After slogging through pages of search engine results with Hawaii drawings, Hawaii sweepstakes, free trip to Hawaii, Hawaii contests and more as search terms, I actually found two contests that are not pau (finished) or look suspect -- a suspicious looking site that probably is just trying to get your personal information.
It is true that once you publish something on the internet it stays up forever in cyberspace because many of the page results that turned up were from 2002 to recently finished this year! And these completed contests are listed on the first page of results, yikes!
The first "Trip to Hawaii!!" Sweepstakes is sponsored by Hilo Hattie (a well known and reputable Hawaiian clothing and souvenirs chain store), and United Airlines.
This is the Hawaii sweepstakes prize:
The sweepstakes prize will include the following; round-trip for two to Hawaii on United Airlines coach class from any point it serves in the Continental U.S. or Japan. Some flight restrictions and block out dates may apply. This prize will be awarded and the winner will be notified by certified mail.

The next contest is from Quiksilver (retail surfboard and clothing store) to celebrate the grand opening of their 100th store location which will be in Waikiki! I had no idea that they had grew to be such a large corporation with world wide locations.
The Grand Prize Drawing includes:
Round trip airfare for two to Honolulu, Hawaii
5 night hotel stay
Quiksilver goodie bag and $300 gift certificate
Attend the Big Wave Invitational
Attend the Grand Opening of the 100th Quiksilver Store
The contest deadline is at the end of this month (July 31, 2007) so better get a move on!

Even though these are reputable companies, I would suggest using a free email account or an email address that you can dump in case it gets too full of spam.
