What is the biggest prize you have ever won?

Did you win a goldfish at the fair? Did you win a million pounds on a scratch card? What's the biggest prize you ever won?

On holiday in Spain, I once won 100 Euros in a karaoke contest. I bet that is a very small amount to some of the answers you guys could come up with!

It's just about the only thing I have ever really won, apart from a football signed by John Barnes

That is also pretty cool! My dad is a huge Liverpool fan, so I think his head would explode of he won that! :lfc:

no fr I was so embarrassed. I was like 7 so im sure they thought i was innocent....maybe
Won a jacket in a sweepstakes event for a new game. Was pretty surprised, when they emailed to say it was being delivered some months after entering I had forgotten and thought it was a scam :tongue:

Also a summer research project funded by the EPSRC although I don't really count that as I was awarded it by default (there were 3 awards and one 2 of us applied for them).

I've worn it so often it's basically mostly holes now. I try and repair it but I'm bad at sewing. That said I'm loathe to replace it since I didn't spend any money on it so spending money to replace it feels like I'm losing money somehow, psychologically...

Well at least the rugged worn look is fashionable, or so I'm told! :lol:
