You can't.
Valve does not sell keys in bulk to be sold in that manner.
To my knowledge, they don't allow the selling of just cd keys period.

However, if you are a notable website or something then you can buy steam cd-keys in bulk to give out.

No, Valve does not sell cd keys in bulk at all.
Valve have stated here before that you should never buy just a cd key from any seller.

I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about contests hosted by gaming websites with steam prizes. For example, shacknews gives out some steam games in a form of steam cd-keys every now and then and cs-nation gave out like 40 l4d2 keys before its launch.

And you certainly can't use the word Steam as your company's name, more than just a little bit illegal.

You're not understanding me.

You will need to contact Valve directly in relation to this. Have a look at this page or alternatively please contact support. Thanks!
