Guidelines for this year's contest

It is early spring, and you know what that means - our annual art and writing contests are kicking off! All kids (excepting relatives of Curious George employees) between the ages of 5 and 13 are eligible. Each contest will be subdivided into age categories: 5 to 7, 8 to 10, and 11 to 13.

Art Contest
Illustrate your favorite fairy tale, poem, short story, or book. Label your artwork with the author and title of the story you're illustrating.

Writing Contest
Write an original story, poem, or essay. Please limit your submissions to 3 pages.

Entering both contests means illustrating your favorite story as well as writing an original story. We love reading stories you have illustrated, only tell us which contest you would prefer us to judge it for!

With all entries, please include our submission form that tells us your name, address, phone number, school and age. This submission form, which you can pick up in the store or download from our blogs, enables us to contact the winners. You can right click on the image above to download and print the entry form, or download it from the bar on the left of this webpage.

Winning artwork will be on display in the store, and winning writing will be posted here on our contest blog. Winners will also receive store gift certificates!

The deadline for entries is Friday, May 13th. Winners will be announced the following Friday the 20th.
