A big prize awarded to the single top winner in a contest. Depending on the type of contest, may include lots of money, a car, a trip, or just about anything.

Just as some buildings have both a ground floor and a first floor, while in others these are one and the same, in some contests the next prize after the grand prize is called a first prize, in others this is the same as the grand prize and the next prize is a second prize.
