Let's all scream for ice cream
(or at least try to win some free scoops)
Monday, February 23, 2009
Ready to host 100 of your neighbors for an ice cream-filled block party? Then enter Edy's contest to win free ice cream for up to 100 neighbors, family and friends.
The Slow Churned Neighborhood Salute contest winners receive ice cream and all the party essentials-bowls, scoops, spoons, a yard sign and a disposable camera.
To enter, submit an essay of 350 words or less explaining why your neighborhood deserves an Edy's Slow Churned Neighborhood Salute. Submissions are accepted from March 3-May 29. Essays are judged on originality, creativity, enthusiasm and what makes their neighborhood special.
The 1,500 winning neighborhoods will be notified in June and parties run from July-September. Winners receive a doorstep delivery of Ice Cream and Party in a Box, valued at $375. To enter, visit www.slowchurned.com for contest information.
If your child is a fan of the TV series "Arthur," let them enter to win a visit from the beloved aardvark, as well as a chance to be on the show. The "Arthur/All Kids Can Character Search" invites kids, age 6-12, to send in their ideas for a new character for Arthur. The character should have a unique ability, character trait or disability.
Kids can mail in their entries, with a drawing of the character and a description of what makes them special. The winning child will be featured in a live-action segment of Arthur. Also, the winner will receive a visit from Arthur creator Marc Brown. For an entry form, go to pbskids.go.org/arthur/allkidscan.
In another contest, kids can submit works of art to decorate Nestle's Push-Up tubes. Kids can win a $1,000 gift card that can be used for art supplies and a $2,500 donation to the winner's school. Go to pushupandcreate.com to get started.
