Krumbs and I made a FABULOUS find today and you will NEVER BELIEVE IT! There is a new contest called the Afterschool Awards and you can win money for college by sharing your afterschool activities! We have all the info and the website below:
Who: The Afterschool Awards were created by a bunch of companies (Izod, JC Penney and NOW That’s What I Call Music to help encourage kids to participate in afterschool stuff.
What: Kids log on to the website and share what they do after school. They can enter in up to four categories, Arts and Music, Community Service, Science and Sports and may win up to $10,000 dollars for college!!!!!!!
When: Kids can enter between now and June 25 and then voting happens July 4th-August 15. Winners will be announced on a live webcast on August 17th.
Where: You can enter by clicking here: AFTERSCHOOL AWARDS. Once you log onto the website you can read entries from other kids and vote for your favorites, learn more about the contest, or even log on to watch the awards show on August 17th.
I can’t decide whether to enter and talk about horseback riding, softball, or singing because I do all those things afterschool. Hey! I can enter for softball and singing or horseback riding and singing since I can enter once in the “sports category” and once in the “arts and music category”. I think it’ll be softball and singing! What afterschool activities do you do? (Krumbs is a little upset…I had to tell him chipmunk chasing is really not considered a sport!)
Good Luck Everyone! We’re going to the site now to read more about the AFTERSCHOOL AWARDS!
