The Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild online 50/50 raffle is a lottery draw in which 50% of the revenues go to one lucky winner and 50% goes to the SWG to target our youth programming. Some of the exciting programs that will benefit from the raffle are Windscript, the Youth Poet Laureate program, and upcoming youth workshops. The draw will be made at noon on May 17, 2021.


Ticket prices are 1 for $10, 5 for $25, and 20 for $50.


Participants of the raffle must be Saskatchewan residents. If you have problems connecting to the raffle draw or other issues, please note the following:

  • The raffle page doesn’t track your location beyond the purchase
  • A Saskatchewan location is required by SLGA guidelines
  • The location verification only takes 3-5 seconds. If your device is "thinking" for longer than that, your location services may be shut off
  • Check to see if location services are enabled—there are TWO places you need to have your location services on for most devices: for example, if you’re using a cellphone, check the phone itself and the browser you're using
  • These short videos explain how to go about this:


Please note: SWG staff and Board are ineligible to win; however, as the SWG has no influence over the draw and the winner is chosen independently through Echolotto, families of SWG board and staff are eligible.
