You could be the next contestant on The Price is Right!

The Price is Right Live! Stage Show is coming to the NMSU Pan American Center on Jan. 22, where you can play the same games and win the same prizes as the hit CBS television show. If you’d like a chance to be in the audience for free, we have four easy ways to win a pair of tickets this week.

Three of the ways to win will take place on Facebook Thursday, Dec. 21. Simply select going or interested at https://www.facebook.com/events/1500735809991681/ and you’ll automatically be registered to win a pair of tickets. We will draw one winner from each category, so it won’t matter which selection you choose. In addition, we’ll select one winner of two tickets from those Facebook accounts identified as invited, so you can double you chances of winning by inviting the person you want to take with you. Of course, that winner will have sole discretion of who they actually take with them.

The final pair of tickets will be given away to a random Twitter user who retweets the NMSU INSIDER Tweet at https://twitter.com/NMSUinsider/status/942874130398953472. The drawing for the Twitter contest will also be on Dec. 21, in case winners choose to gift the tickets for the holidays.
