We don’t know anyone who doesn’t like winning free stuff! And what better way to help introduce Lifers to new McHenry County experiences than by giving away prizes from McHenry County businesses.
If you want to sponsor a McHenry Life sweepstake giveaway, either as part of a Spotlight Story or as a standalone giveaway, please see our Sponsor page.
We’ll link to current and past sweepstakes below, but first, we wanted to give a broad overview of our rules & terms for sweepstakes, because it’s a bummer to win something and then find out you are disqualified.

My McHenry Life $100 Giveaway
January 5 – 31, 2023: We kicked off 2023 with our first-ever My McHenry Life giveaway where the winner got to choose their prize. Participants chose a McHenry County business, organization, or charity where they wanted to use their $100 winnings.
What a hit! This unique giveaway had the highest participation of any giveaway we’ve done so far. Thank you again to everyone who participated.
