Scholastic Announces Last Call for BIG Idea Submissions

Now that the kids are out of school, take a little time with them to enter Scholastic Media's Clifford The Big Red Dog® "BE BIG In Your Community Contest."

The contest calls upon kids, parents, teachers, and community leaders to submit their BIG ideas for creating positive change in their communities by demonstrating Clifford’s Big Ideas; Share, Play Fair, Have Respect, Work Together, Be Responsible, Be A Good Friend, Help Others, Be Truthful, Be Kind and Believe In Yourself.

The BE BIG Fund will help bring the winning BIG idea to life by awarding one (1) Grand Prize $25,000 community grant and ten (10) runner-up $2,500 community grants to implement the winning BIG ideas via HandsOn Network local affiliate organizations.

Last day to submit is June 26, 2009 so enter your BIG idea soon at http://www.scholastic.com/cliffordbebig
