How to enter the Sandboxx Fall Photo Battle


STEP ONE: Start by sending a Letter to your recruit. Make sure to send your Letter by 5pm EDT for next-day delivery (M-Th).

STEP TWO: Snap a photo of you and your Letters or anything else that represents you and your recruit’s military journey,

STEP THREE: Post to Instagram or Facebook (or both) using the hashtag #SandboxxLettersDon’t forget to tag Sandboxx, too! You can find us on Instagram here and Facebook here.

  1. Can I still enter and participate in the contest even if my son is no longer at boot camp? I used Sandboxx to send letters to my son almost everyday while he was in boot at Parris island. He is now in training at Ft. Leonardwood, Missouri. So, I guess what I’m asking is, can I still participate in the contest? And if so, how?
    Thank you so very much in advance. I can’t wait to see everyone’s pictures!! Good luck amd enjoy everyone!🎃

    1. Hi, Jennifer. Yes, you can still enter the contest. Your military member doesn’t need to be a recruit to participate. We hope this helps.

  2. Hi! On September 11th I bought an 8 letter bundle and still have letter credits to use to send more letters. For this contest do I need to purchase more to be eligible?

    Thank you!
