Play With Your Pears Kids’ Art Contest

Creative Kids Can Win a $1,000 Gift Certificate

for Art or School Supplies

It’s a fact that kids love to play with their food, and that they are more likely to eat the dishes they have helped to prepare. All the more reason for the Pacific Northwest Canned Pear Service to team up with SmileMakers®, Inc. to encourage kids to “Play With Your Pears” in a fun and constructive way – a creative contest.

To sweeten the experience, two talented kids will win a $1,000 gift certificate to spend on art or school supplies.

No purchase necessary – really! You can start with canned pears as the imaginative spark, or download a simple pear graphic (on the contest site) for the children in your family, school, or boy/girls scout (or other) group to decorate. Take a photo of the finished work and email it for posting on the Eat Canned Pears Facebook page.

The contest is open to all kids in two age categories: 5-12 and 13-18. The winner in each category will be awarded a $1,000 SmileMakers, Inc. gift certificate. The contest kicks off October 1, 2010 and closes November 30, 2010. The judges’ decision will be announced on or before December 10, 2010.

We respect the privacy of minors and operate this contest in compliance with COPPA rules and regulations. All entries from minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian’s approval. See full rules and regulations.
