Oh, I won a football signed by the whole Wimbledon team at middle school.

Once won two tickets to a Red Dwarf episode filming via twitter. Had to turn them down as it was taking place on Christmas Eve and I was going to be several hundred miles away.

Won Young Musician of the Year at my Primary School. I was 10.

That's literally it.

Now I'm sad.

I won in court and now I’ll never have to tell them where the bodies are.

I work in sales, there are quite a lot of internal promos to win.
I have won a few holidays, New York, Singapore, Skiing in the Alps, Ibiza, Barcelona. Quite a lot of electronics (I was selling a couple of laptops on here a while back) (Oh I do have a HP Sprocket and a Nutribullet I should probably sell too if anyone is interested)
Not sure if they count as it is basically an OTE on my job though

External to that though basically nothing, oh I did win Billy Hatcher and a signed picture from some guy that worked on it (no idea where that is now though)

Don't think I've ever won any competition or anything like that, but I did win the presitigious Manager's Player of the Year for my under-12s football team so if that doesn't impress you then I don't know what ever would 8-)

I don't think I've ever won anything significant in my life. I won some CDs from a radio show once in a competition for making porn film titles out of Disney films... for reference the winning entries were Snow White strawberry floats the Seven Dwarfs and Poke Her Hot Ass.

I won an N64 with Pokemon Stadium and the Transfer Pak from a cinema prize draw. Still have the N64 somewhere, never used (although opened for the controller that came with it).

Nothing really sticks out as far as winning prize draws and the like, won a few bits and bobs in raffles over the years - usually acohol!

I won a Raspberry Pi 3 and case from work for coming top in a hackathon at work recently - that's probably the best win I can recall.

Won the entire Egyptian Adventures LEGO set twenty years ago from a draw in, I think, The Telegraph's weekend kids section.

Massive box of a dozen sets or so. Great stuff.

When I was 6/7 I won an art competition at school where you had to draw the bridge the local town was famous for.

When they put everyone's paintings up I realised I'd been confused by the bridge they meant and had actually painted a completely unrelated bridge in a completely different town (I don't know how I got confused). Decided not to say anything when they announced I'd won :shifty:

Still got my medal :cool:

I've hardly ever won anything. But I went to some kind of 80s charity event about four years ago and won a night's stay at a Jury's Inn hotel. So my girlfriend and I went to Brighton and had a nice short stay by the coast.
