The user-generated content contest asks allergy sufferers to upload a short video depicting their struggle with allergies for a shot at a $5,000 travel gift card. Boatwright will pick 10 finalists from videos submitted by Sept. 2, and The Weather Channel will air some of them. Visitors to the Facebook page can also enter a sweepstakes through which six people will win $100 travel certificates.
