Giving Thanks: Tell Us What You Are Thankful For!

The holidays are approaching and it’s time for SusanvilleStuff’s first-ever video/essay contest, brought to you complete with turkey, stuffing and that gelatinous stuff that grandma calls cranberry sauce.

It’s our SusanvilleStuff Thanksgiving contest, and appropriate to the occasion, the topic is ‘giving thanks.’

It’s inspired by the holiday, and we invite all of our readers to take stock of the blessings you’re thankful for, and share it with  our community through video or written submission.

You can record the video on your i-phone or mobile device or you can send us a written submission. Just upload your video to YouTube and send us a link.

To enter the contest simply upload your video titled SusanvilleStuff Giving Thanks to YouTube anytime between November 7th and the 15th. If you prefer to write your submission we will happily accept those too.

Our judges will narrow it down to three entries and give all of our readers a chance to vote on their favorite! Our winner will be announced in WebXtra on Wednesday, November 21st.

We’re looking for creative interpretations on the topic, not confessional-style orated lists. Maybe it’s a montage of tiny moments that fill you with joy, a mini-documentary of your family traditions, or a strange stop-motion adventure about the things you treasure most. Creativity counts!

E-mail your name, your age and a way to contact you along with your written essay or a link to your YouTube video to [email protected].

What Do You Win?

Our winner will receive a big gift basket full to the brim with holiday items from local merchants!

  • Holiday Decor from the Banner Lassen Gift Shop, Every Bloomin’ Thing, and Milwood Florist
  • Two passes to the Sierra Theatre and Uptown Cinemas
  • Two tickets to the Susanville Symphony’s Christmas performance
  • A 10-12 lbs turkey from Susanville Supermarket IGA
  • A $50 Gift Certificate to Lassen Ale Works

Giving Thanks 

A Word from the Jeremy and Marshel Couso
Owners of SusanvilleStuff

It’s grandson Mayson!


Every year is different. Times change, things evolve, life happens. But no matter what, the friends and family we carry with us through the years are our most valuable treasures.

We are so grateful for our wonderful family, and that never changes over the years.

We have four generations of our family who live and work in this town, are part of your neighborhood, and nothing could make us prouder or happier.

We are also thankful that we have readers and advertisers who support us in our mission; to promote everything Susanville – to let the world know what a wonderful place we live in, and to help local businesses advertise and promote their products. It’s really a quite simple job we have, and we are so incredibly thankful to have been given the opportunity to shine at our appointed tasks.

We have an amazing staff of talented ladies who are constantly taking us to new heights and making us better. We are thankful that we get to come to work everyday and hang out with such cool people. They are the ones that make everything possible around here. 

We are so thankful for all of you. Those of you who read WebXtra each day, turn to us for breaking news coverage, read our feature stories, enjoy our photo galleries or enter to win our contests. All of these little things keep SusanvilleStuff moving forward and for that we are thankful every day.

We are very blessed to have you all in our life supporting our business and we thank you!
