Winners will receive a Sleep Number Kids™ pillow, twin protection pad, twin sheets, ZZZ Bear bundle, Sesame Street military kid transition activity book, and a lifetime subscription to Caribu reading app—valued at $650.

 “The Blue Star Families 2019 Military Family Lifestyle Survey found that many MilFams – more than a third – aren’t getting the sleep they need to function effectively,” said Kathy Roth-Douquet, CEO of Blue Star Families. “While we know our Sleep Kits don’t fix the unique challenges military kids face, we do know they bring comfort amidst chaos. And that’s exactly why we’re honored to be hosting the Sleep Well Sweepstakes for the sixth consecutive year, courtesy of our fabulous Blue Star Partner, Sleep Number.”
