Your kid’s artwork looks pretty cute on the fridge, but wouldn’t it look even better on a greeting card? Save the Children, an organization that fights childhood poverty in the U.S., is sponsoring a Valentine’s Day card contest for kids. Open to students in pre-K through 12th grade, kids can design and submit a V-Day card by November 8 around the theme of "Uniting a Generation” using a heart image. Finalist designs selected by judges from Save the Children and the American Federation of Teachers will be posted online on November 13, where kids have until November 17 to vote for their faves. The five most popular designs will be printed and offered as part of a gift with a donation in February. The winning artists will receive a $500 U.S. Savings Bond, and the card with the most votes will have an opportunity to meet actress Julianne Moore, Save the Children's Artist Ambassador.
Last year, the organization received hundreds of submissions from students across the country. The winners got to go to New York City to meet Moore and also appeared on The Today Show. How cool is that?
