OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network, recently announced the launch of a sweepstakes at Oprah.com in support of the new series “Oprah’s Lifeclass,” formerly “OWN YOUR LIFE (the oprah class),” and its online companion course. Starting today, viewers can enter the sweepstakes for a chance to meet Oprah Winfrey at the O You! event in Atlanta and reserve their spot for the online companion class at www.oprah.com/oprahslifeclass.
The first million people to sign up for the online class will be eligible to receive an exclusive, limited edition “Oprah’s Lifeclass” journal, and can enter for a chance to meet Oprah in person at the O You! event hosted by O, the Oprah magazine. In addition, up to 15 winners will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Atlanta to participate in O You! where they will be the first students in Oprah’s class and will join her on stage.
OWN is partnering with Care2, Shine on Yahoo and numerous cable, satellite and Telco distribution partners to reach its goal of one million students by Oct. 10. Sixteen million viewers in the United States alone tuned in for the finale of “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” In the historic final hour, Oprah took the stage as a teacher in the world’s biggest classroom, highlighting the principles that guide her life. Many of these principles were gleaned from the 4,561 hours of “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”
In the all-new series, “Oprah’s Lifeclass,” Oprah will reache back through the show’s 25-year history to teach the lessons that matter most to her. She will touch on some guidelines for fulfilling your life’s potential: breaking through the barriers, understanding your purpose, letting go of anger, using joy to fuel your life and becoming all you were meant to be. Oprah will share her most personal revelations and what she thinks now about those iconic show moments and guests. “Oprah’s Lifeclass,” with actual course work available on Oprah.com, should provide an even more enriching experience. It premieres Monday, Oct. 10 at 8 p.m.
O You! will take place on Saturday, Oct. 15 at the Georgia Wood Congress Center in Atlanta for a day dedicated to you and living your best life. Every year, this full-day event brings Oprah fans from around the world together for a truly memorable day of learning, inspiration and fun. Attendees can participate in panels led by O, the Oprah Magazine contributors such as Suze Orman, Dr. Oz, Nate Berkus, Martha Beck, Donna Brazile, Peter Walsh, Bob Greene, Adam Glassman and Val Monroe.
