Perdue, Crayola Draw Families With Art Contest
Taking note research showing that kids who frequently eat dinner with their parents do better in school, Perdue Farms Inc. has launched a national contest inviting families to enter an original picture illustrating how they make mealtime fun, for a chance to win such prizes as a cruise package, a year's supply of Perdue Frozen Fully Cooked Chicken and a pack of Crayola and Perdue products.
Entrants can submit pictures, digital photos or original drawings of how they enliven dinnertime, at www.perdue.com/familyfun, where they can vote for their own entry in October, as well as urging family members and friends to do the same. The 20 pictures with the most votes will become finalists, with the grand-prize, first-prize and second-prize winners to be chosen from among them by Perdue’s judging panel. The judges will make their decisions based on creativity, originality and the extent to which the artwork represents a fun family meal.
One option for contestants is to enter their submissions from Crayola Lights, Camera, Color!, an online program at Crayola.com/ColorMe that enables users to upload a digital photo and turn it into a coloring page. A free program access code is printed on packages of Perdue Frozen Nuggets, Frozen Whole Grain Nuggets, Frozen Popcorn Chicken, Breaded Original Nuggets, Breaded Original Nuggets with Real Cheddar Cheese, Fun Shaped Breaded Nuggets and Refrigerated Baked Whole Grain Nuggets.
The contest entry period ends on Sept. 30 and is open to U.S. residents 13 years of age or older, including parents of children younger than 13; kids must have their parent or guardian's permission to enter. The Lights, Camera, Color! offer is limited to one per person and the code is valid for unlimited use within seven days of activation. Full details and official rules are available at the Perdue website.
