well, when i was really small, my godmother entered me in a church raffle for a GrandFather clock. Won that, parents still have it. Its huge, so until I get a house of my own, they'll keep it.

Won a 27" TV from UPS when I was a slave there.

Thats about it.

I used to win science fairs all the time when I was younger. I have a best of show in a state-wide competition from second grade.

Every year I did an experiment with light. That year I was working with light/sound waves.

Biggest thing I ever won was $10,000 on a lottery scratch ticket. :D
I've won several CD's, concert tickets, movie passes, a cell phone, a RIO MP3 player, and assorted other stuff over the years.

I assume we aren't talking about talent based winnings (essay contests, etc). Best random thing I ever won was a purpe PT Cruiser which I then sold.

I've won several bean burritos at Taco Bell. They have one of those water tanks with little paddles that they use to raise money for Boys and Girls Clubs. You drop coins in, and if a quarter lands on the paddle, you get a free burrito.

Of course, each one has cost me three or four dollars.
