We've returned from our weekend travels. Now I'm trying to reorganize our house in preparation for the start of school. So no review posts for a few days. However, here are a couple fun art / design / drawing contests that sound like fun to enter. They should keep the kids busy:
Lands' End Every Tee Tells A Story Art Contest -
For kids ages 4 to 11. Submit a drawing based on the theme of “Arctic Exploration” for a chance to have your design featured in the next Lands’ End Graphic Tee collection. Equally awesome and another great reason to submit a drawing -- For every entry received, Lands’ End will donate $1 to fund art-related classroom projects at public schools throughout the nation via its partnership with DonorsChoose.org – up to $10,000. Get creating - the contest ends Septemember 7th. For more information visit http://www.landsend.com/thehub/dads/index.html. Be sure to check out the rules and use the official entry form.
