“Don’t Mention The F_ _ _ Word!”

The three winners of V’s latest student focused promotion, which kicked off on Monday May 13, will have absolutely no excuses if they fail any exams this semester. They’re going to be the most pampered students around, with their prize packs taking care of both body and mind.

Each winner will receive a fridge, which they can keep, heaps of V, a maid service (so they don’t waste valuable study time on housework), and a masseuse to sooth their stressed shoulders. Also, to make sure they wake up on time and get to their exams in pristene condition, they’ll receive a G-Shock watch and limo rides to their exams!

It doesn’t stop there though; with post-exam chilling out also catered for by a snowboard and season pass to Cadrona, Whakapapa and Turoa.

Entry is easy; no arse waxing or running through walls required this year, with both texting and online options available. Students simply need to say what V means to them in less than 50 characters, by either texting 021HLPMEV (021 457638), including their name and campus as well, or filling in an online entry form at

Entries close at 5pm on May 30 and the winners will receive their prizes during study break and exam weeks in early June. Full details of the prizes and competition terms and conditions can also be found on
