What is wrong with this sentence and what is the grammer rule? The contest winner was me.

The best way to correct this sentence is to write: I was the contest winner.

The rules go like this: Active voice is better than passive voice, and your version is in the passive voice. I is a subject pronoun and must be used because I is really the subject, even if you want to keep the sentence itself in the passive voice.
