Aaron Brothers launches coloring contest
Submitted By Caitlin Gooch
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, on April 22, Aaron Brothers Art & Framing is sponsoring a kids' art contest themed "Coloring Earth Green." Entries will be accepted in Aaron Brothers' stores until April 18. Approximately $26,000 in prizes will be awarded to kids and their schools-including a Grand Prize trip to the Crayola Factory for two students and their families.
To enter the "Coloring Earth Green" contest, artists should create artwork that focuses on the planet and protection of the environment. To be eligible, the piece of art must be unframed on 9 inch by 12 inch paper. Artists are welcome to use any medium, including paint, crayons, markers and three-dimensional objects. Finished artwork can be entered at any Aaron Brothers store. In addition to the original artwork, each child will need to submit a completed entry form, which requires parent/guardian consent. Complete contest rules and a store locator can be found at www.aaronbrothers.com.
Each Aaron Brothers store will display its entries, and two winners will be selected from each store during a voting event April 24 and 25. The two categories are for ages 5 - 8 and 9 - 12. The winning entries from each store will be posted online for the nation to vote May 5 to May 21. Online voting will determine the Grand Prize, Second Prize and Third Prize winners. Winners will be announced around May 28.
Grand Prize winners from each age category will win a trip to the Crayola Factory in Easton, Pennsylvania, for four people, including air travel and hotel accommodations for 3 days and 2 nights, and a $500 Aaron Brothers gift card. Their designated schools will each receive a $1,000 gift card.
Second Place Prize winners will each receive a $200 Aaron Brothers gift card. Their designated schools will each receive a $500 Aaron Brothers gift card.
Third Place Prize winners will each receive a $100 Aaron Brothers gift card. Their designated schools will each receive a $300 Aaron Brothers gift card.
