Playing the record revealed if you were a winner or not - at the end an announcer would come on and say "Congratulations, you are a winner!", and then state the prize won, or a "lose" message. The grand prize was a 14 day trip for 4 people to the "Rock 'N Roll Capitals (sic) of the World" (New York, London, LA), a visit to a recording studio, and $5000 spending money. A total of 20,103 prizes were awarded.
Near-mint copies of the "loser" Lennon flexi are valued at $25-$30.00, more if the center hole is still intact. Any of the original Granola Dipps contest boxes would be worth around $25.00 in NM condition. So far, no "Win" discs have yet surfaced on the collectors market - if any ever turn up, it is estimated that they would be worth $250.00 or more.
