GMQC is giving away a trip to the Caribbean. Here’s how you can win!

It's that time of year again. We're gearing up for the Winter season, which means snow, ice, and cold. What if the only ice was in your frozen cocktail on the beach in the Caribbean?

WQAD News 8 has teamed up with Apple Vacations and the Chicago/Rockford International Airport for the "Passport to Paradise!" One lucky winner and a guest will fly round-trip, nonstop to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic for a beach-side vacation getaway!

But here's the only catch: You'll need the day's secret word in order to enter. Every morning on Good Morning Quad Cities, somewhere between 4:30 and 7:00am, we'll announce the day's secret word. Take that word and enter it on the contests page.
