At Crayola, green is more than just a color; it’s a commitment to ensure that today’s kids have a healthy environment for their creative tomorrows. To celebrate the eco-evolution of our crayons made with solar power, markers made from bottle caps and colored pencils made from reforested wood, we’re launching a contest to create the Crayola Green Team, a group of 10 kids ready to make the world a greener place using their creativity!
We will send the Green Team to Crayola headquarters in Easton, Pa, to help plug Crayola into our new solar farm. And if one of your students is selected as a member of the Green Team, we’ll send you $500 of Crayola products for your classroom!
How you can get involved:
1. Have your students in grades K through 8 create artwork inspired by eco-friendly class discovery and discussion. Feel free to submit artwork that has already been created by your students this year.
2. Download our ekit for tips and tools to help get you started.
3. Share information with parents and let them know they can upload their child’s artwork to the Green Contest tab at http://www.facebook.com/crayola or send via email at http://www.crayola.com/green/contest starting May 26. OR Get their permission, and upload or send students’ work yourself!
4. Spread the word on Facebook to help get votes for your students.
Contest submissions will be accepted from May 26 until June 28, so get started and inspire your students to dream in green!
