Parent & Child's Masterpiece of the Month Artwork Contest
There are few things as beautiful, interesting, and true as children’s artwork. That’s why we’re dedicating a contest (with a $100 prize!) to showcasing your kids’ amazing creativity!
Submission guidelines: Snap a photo or scan a copy of your kid's artwork (it can be almost anything!). Ask your child to describe it, then e-mail your entry to email@example.com (be sure to keep the original!) by September 30th. If we choose to feature your child's art in the magazine, he could win $100!
