Your Child's Drawing Could Take You to Orlando!
Get your kid thinking creatively for a good cause with the American Academy of Pediatrics' 9th Annual Children's Art Contest. If your child submits a piece of original artwork depicting a world without tobacco and secondhand smoke, he or she could be invited to Orlando to present the masterpiece at the AAP's National Conference & Exhibition, and receive $500 cash and up to $1,000 in travel expenses. Second-place winners receive $250, and all six winners' schools will receive matching cash amounts. The contest is open to children in three groups: grades 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12. To enter, children must send their artwork by August 30 to Children's Art Contest, American Academy of Pediatrics, 141, Northwest Point Boulevard, Elk Grove Village, IL 60007. (You can't enter online, but you'll find the complete rules, entry form, and consent form here.)
