MONTREAL, Aug. 27 /CNW Telbec/ - Teachers, administrators, and students,
time to put your creativity caps on! Just in time for back-to-school, MEGA
Brands (TSX: MB) has launched the "RoseArt Design your Dream Classroom"
contest, inviting K-8 classrooms across the U.S and Canada to submit their
dream classroom designs for a chance to win loads of RoseArt school supplies.
"It is really inspiring to see young minds come together, and direct
their creativity toward designing and creating a work of art colored by their
imagination" said Vic Bertrand, Chief Innovation Officer of MEGA Brands. "We
continue to offer family-friendly value through our RoseArt brand, and this
contest is a great way to encourage students to become designers and
architects by creating their ultimate classroom."
The contest invites participants to create and digitally submit a
creative design of their dream classroom through the new RoseArt website at
www.roseart.com. The website features an online gallery where kids and
classrooms can upload and share their pictures.
The grand prizes will be awarded to the top three creative classrooms,
one in each of the following grade categories: K-2, 3-5, 6-8, who will win
RoseArt school supplies for the remaining 2009/2010 school term. Each prize is
valued at approximately $1,700. Secondary prizes will be awarded to 12
classrooms, three in each of the following grade groupings: K-2, 3-5, 6-8, who
will receive a basket full of RoseArt supplies for their classroom, valued at
approximately $150 each.
Entrants can digitally submit any artwork such as drawings, mock-ups,
photographs etc. A judging panel will select the top 30 submissions, 10 in
each grade category, and final winners will be selected through a public
online voting process that will begin once the contest closes. Voting will be
based on the most creative, original and innovative entry. All entries must be
received by 5:00 pm EDT on October 22, 2009. Winners will be formally
