Creative Contest for Kids

Friday, May 07, 2010 Posted by Dina N

Does your child wear a uniform to school? According to some statistics, more than 1 in 5 public schools now have a dress code, and that’s on top of the many private, parochial and charter schools that have dress codes.

I am excited to share the news about a new contest launched this week by French Toast. If a child in your life attends any of the schools where uniforms are required, you must be familiar with this company. If you are not - French Toast (not to be confused with the namesake breakfast) is a leading provider of school uniforms. They are sponsoring a $15,000 contest in which kids who attend a school that has a dress code can show the world what makes them unique and special. The contest is called “Show Us The Real ‘U’ In Uniform” and aims to provide a forum for kids to express their individuality. It is open to all uniform-wearing children.

In this contest, children are encouraged to send in videos or essays with pictures – showing them dressed in their uniforms – that illustrate and describe why they are exceptional. Kids and their parents can enter the contest by visiting and following the instructions. Videos must include some footage of the student in his/her school uniform and can be a maximum of two minutes in length. Essays can be a maximum of 300 words and must be accompanied by at least one picture of the child in uniform (maximum of six pictures). The final day to submit an entry is September 15.

On November 1, French Toast will be posting the 10 finalists and people will be able to vote for their favorites. The grand prize winner will win $10,000 in cash and their school will receive $5,000 in vouchers from French Toast. Results will be announced on or around November 30.
