One Heartland girl and eight friends will get to live their dream. They, along with a parent and chaperone, are flying to New York City to attend a One Direction concert.
Saturday evening, several of the lucky girls and their friends started to make a scrapbook to present to the band. Ashley Campbell’s name was chosen from the Sharpie Facebook page and declared the winner.
The Omaha Roncalli junior says she feels lucky, but wants the streak extended at least for a day or two. “I really don’t think I get to meet them, but I’m going to try to. That’s why we’re making a scrapbook and we’re going to try and meet them. I am determined to meet this band, they are my inspiration.”
She says picking just a handful of friends was tough, but tells Channel 6 News she essentially held a second contest so the biggest One Direction fans could go.
One Direction is a British boy band. The concert Ashley and her friends get to see is the band's soldout Madison Square Garden show.
