Dockers Wear the Pants Project is giving away $100,000. Actually, the winner of the contest will receive $150,000. The additional $50,000 is suppose to help defray income and sales taxes (I’m glad we don’t have a sales tax in Oregon). In addition to the $150,000 grand prize, Dockers is also awarding forty-three (43) $2,000 “Man Grants” (in cash, services, tools, or resources). The man grants will be awarded weekly.
