Art and Writing Contest Guidelines

It's that time of year again: the start of our annual Just for Kids Art and Writing Contests! Here are the guidelines for both contests (you can enter one or both!), and an entry form you can print out and send in with your submission. All entries are due by April 30th. Winners will be announced May 15th.

Art Contest:
Illustrate a scene from your favorite p
oem, fairy tale, short story, or book. Please be sure to label your artwork with the title and author of the work you have chosen to illustrate.

Writing Contest:
Write an original short story, poem, or essay. Three pages maximum.

Prize-winning artwork will be on display in Curious George from June through August. Prize-winning writing will be posted right here on this blog.

Submissions will be judged by age group: ages 5 to 7, 8 to 10, and 11 to 13. Gift certificates will be awarded to first, second and third place winners.

No purchase necessary. All kids between the ages of 5 and 13 are eligible, except relatives of Curious George employees. Please enter each contest only once. Children submitting multiple entries in either category will be disqualified. Children should enter only their own work.
