$250 "O Bee a Sleuth" Contest

“He looked about as inconspicuous as a tarantula on a slice of angel food cake.” ― Raymond Chandler

Who doesn’t love a good detective story? O Bee’s 2020 Calendar features sumptuous, full-color illustrations from the 1930s, 40s and 50s — a film noir era characterized by spy novels, gritty detective stories, pulp fiction and melodramatic romances. We decided to have a little fun this year by using the lush imagery featured in our calendar pages as inspiration to re-imagine the backstories for the Olympia Beer ads of the time. And to have even more fun, we are offering a chance for you to win $250 to play along.

Here's How It Works:

You can do either of the things below, or both!
  1. Each month of our 2020 Calendar features a mysteriously intriguing mini spy story. Add an ending to any of the stories and crack the case for $250.*
  2. Not a writer? Flip through our calendar and use your “20-20” spy vision to sleuth out where we've placed a secret jumbled word. Tell us what it is and you might win $250.*
